Community Orchard planting
Date Published: Sun 17th Apr 2016
Saturday 12th December saw the second phase of Community Orchard planting take place, with each tree sponsored by an individual, family or organisation linked to the Park. Amongst those planting the trees was Tunbridge Wells Mayor David Elliott, the Kent High Weald Partnership (who manage Hilbert Local Nature Reserve within the park) and the Parks own Friends Group.
The day also saw dedication plaques being placed on the first phase of planting, each with a dedication from the sponsor, including one from John Scholey, Tunbridge Wells Town Crier. This brought the total of trees planted in the Community Orchard to over 65. This fantastic addition to the Park is really starting to take shape now. The involvement of local sponsors brings a real sense of community involvement and ownership to the orchard.
The final phase of planting will take place in 2016 and will see the orchard fully stocked with a wide variety of fruit trees.
