Pruning day in Gorsley

posted in: GOT Events, pruning, volunteers | 0

A lovely day was had by young and old in an orchard in the village of Gorsley, near Newent last Saturday, 21st April.  The workshop was organised by GOT and funded by TCTOP.  There was lots of cake and tea on hand to keep the band of workers motivated throughout the day.  Martin Hayes was the expert who provided the tuition and direction so that everyone of any skill level could make a valid contribution to helping to restore this lovely traditional orchard.  At the end of the day everyone retired to the pub for food, drink and a speech of thanks from Martin.

Wassails 2018

posted in: orchard, wassail | 0

Next month there are a number of traditional orchard Wassails which are well worth going along to.  They are great fun for all the family: young and old alike.  There’s often singing, story-telling, dancing, food and of course cider!

Our Partner Events page lists some of them – or you can click the links below to get more details on specific wassails:

Perry Christmas everybody!
