Volunteers needed for wood chipping at Longney Orchards!

Saturday, September 30th, 2017 - Sunday, October 1st, 2017

Volunteers needed for wood chipping at Longney Orchards!

Saturday 30 September 2017 (and probably Sunday 1 October).

If you can spare an hour or two (or longer if you can) GOT’s Longney Orchard Management Group would be extremely grateful!

We need to clear all the prunings and chip or stack them neatly, to help meet requirements for Countryside Stewardship for flailing the grass afterwards with the aim of introducing sheep to the orchards in the near future. You will be guided as to what needs doing. GOT is hiring a heavy duty chipping machine for the weekend, thanks to funds from Trust Juice.

Please bring appropriate weather attire (including long sleeves), footwear, packed lunch/refreshments, something to sit on, gloves etc. If you have pruners & goggles that would help but we do have some tools.

Please contact Ann Smith for further information and to let us know if you think you can help – ann@smithcovell.co.uk or info@glosorchards.org

There is the Anchor Inn nearby if folk wish to eat there.

Please note the ground is uneven and there are nettles/brambles.

This event is not suitable for younger children due to nettles and machinery.
