New community orchard for Chesham here at Chesham Moor Gym and Swim
"The Community Orchard was planted on Saturday 29th November at Chesham Moor Gym and Swim. After seeing what had been achieved in Lowndes Park, Chesham with the community orchard, I approached one of the organsiers Julia Brammer to see what was needed in order to have a satellite project here at the centre." says Danny Essex, centre manager.
"Discussions started, costs were discussed and I hunted down tree sponsors. A total of 7 dwarf trees were purchased and planted by volunteers with the intention of providing fruit for the community.
I have been encouraged and inspired by Chesham’s success at winning GOLD in the very competitive Britain in Bloom and I feel that after the success of our community salad bed that was stocked by Chesham in Bloom, I needed to keep pushing for the next project.
This goes to show that with a little drive we can all make our environments a more enjoyable place to be. Encourage wildlife to thrive, fruit to grow and most of all, put something back as you only get out what you put in.
