ORCHARD SURVEY: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The University of East Anglia are heading up a project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, called 'Orchards East'. The project aims both to research and record old orchards, and to establish new community orchards, across the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

The initial survey work - which aims to establish the location and condition of surviving orchards - is being carried out by volunteers. The work is straightforward and, we hope, enjoyable: volunteers are sent maps, a survey pack and full instructions, while a training day for volunteers in Cambridgeshire is planned for later in the summer.

If you are interested in taking part please contact the Parish Clerk or see www.orchardseast.org.uk
