Orchard volunteering session in Ladywell Fields - Sunday 31 January, 11am-1.00pm

The community orchard planted in Ladywell Fields in 2011 is thriving but, like any orchard, it needs constant care and attention if the trees are to grow strongly and avoid disease.  This is one of our twice-yearly volunteer sessions at which you can learn and help prune the trees, inspect and repair the guards and mulch the trees with woodchip to keep weeds down.

At this session you'll also be able to take a look inside the Iona Orchard nature reserve, a lovely quiet wilderness behind a locked gate at the southern end of Ladywell Fields.
To register your interest in participating please email  If you do come and you have any of the following please bring them - thick gloves, secateurs and garden buckets.  Also, at the risk of stating the obvious, come in work clothes with robust shoes!

If the weather is seriously bad on Sunday 31 January, we have a fallback date which is Sat 27 February.
