A Community Orchard for Whatcote, Oxhill & Tysoe


The project steering group is preparing a very detailed full application for funding from the Big Lottery.  In particular, we are most grateful to Lord Northampton who has very kindly agreed to make land available for the orchard.  The exact location has still to be finalised, but it is expected that the application for funding, which will include details of the land, will be submitted by mid-May.

There is tremendous interest in the project from residents and groups representing all three villages and the team encourages individuals, families and organisations who would like to get involved in the project to get in touch with them - Liz Atkinson (680045 / 07768 166483) Derek Harbour (680676), Sam Littlewood (688137), Paul Sayer (680451), Sue and Mike Sanderson (688080) or Graham Collier (680127 / 07889 360133).

Once the location of the orchard is finalised, and the application submitted, there will be a meeting for everyone interested in the scheme, probably in late May.  This will be to hear about the orchard and learn about the fundamentals of fruit production from our orchard expert John Edgeley.

If anyone would like to discuss the project in more detail please get in touch with Liz, Derek, Sam, Paul, Sue, Mike or Graham.  They will be delighted to talk to you about the projectís progress.
