Our Community Orchard is Coming to Town

Honey Pin Orchard is due to be planted during National Tree Week.

23rd Nov- 1st Dec. We are inviting local groups to come and adopt a Tree. If you would like to know more about this project, become a volunteer or find out more about adopting one of the Apple Trees do contact us.

The Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust (WBCT), alongside East Hampshire District Council and Whitehill Town Council have had an overwhelming positive response to their questionnaire regarding whether the community would like to see an Orchard on the green space at the end of Savile Crescent, Bordon.

Over 92% of those who completed the survey agreed that they think the Orchard would be a good idea, giving reasons, such as promoting healthy living, utilising a redundant space and bringing the community together to create an area to be proud of. When asked, locals also agreed that they would like to see different activities in the Community Orchard, including growing food, community events and opportunities for volunteering, apprentices and training.

Further to this survey we have also had some excellent name suggestions. The top three have been compiled into a new survey and the public are invited to make the final decision on naming the Community Orchard, this survey can be found here – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/F5KQPX5

Honey Pin Orchard Trees are due to be planted during National Tree week. 23rd Nov- 1st Dec.

Come and Adopt a Tree and enjoy the fruit! 

We would like to invite any one in the community to come and join in this project.  please email info@wbcommunitytrust.co.uk or call 01420 558085
