Pruning & Guarding Workshop at GOT’s Longney Orchards

Thursday, June 8th, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

A Pruning & Guarding Workshop at GOT’s Longney Orchards.  From 10.00 to 15.00 or whatever time you can spare.

Please bring a packed lunch, refreshments, something to sit on and appropriate weather attire/boots. Hand sanitizer/wipes are handy, but Martin should have some. If you have any tools for pruning and guarding, including stout gloves & loppers, that would be helpful.

If you see any litter at Longney or rabbit spirals which need realigning/pushing to the ground, please deal with this as you go along, but Martin will advise too. Especially at Longney, we need to keep “tidy” piles of prunings and brash so that mowing can take place.

Be mindful of uneven ground/overhanging branches etc. Martin will show you safe handling of tools. If you have health issues/allergies we should know about, let him know on the day or beforehand, in confidence of course. Martin is first aid trained and he always brings a first aid kit.

Please park sensitively in the road at Longney and walk down the track from the white railings (next to Bow Lane Cottage). The grid ref. for the white railings is SO 7598 1368. There is only vehicular access for Martin. He will either meet you at the white railings or just come on down (several hundred yards across arable to the orchards). First orchard is Long Tyning (long and thin) then Bollow. Also on site are Middle & Lower Orchards (mostly empty fields) which will/are being planted up with heritage orchards of regional/national importance.

Please book if you want to attend – via Ann Smith at

Martin can be reached on 07900 985679.
