Events in 2017

This year's Apple Day on Saturday 14 October was a great success. Everyone had lots of fun with juicing, tasting lots of different apple varieties and children's games.

Our Orchard Annual Meeting was held on Wednesday 5 July in Jesmond Library. We enjoyed a short video of the Orchard's year, a fun gardening quiz with lots of prizes and finished with a drop of cider!

On Saturday 13 May, we held another successful plant stall at the Festival Fair, this year held on St George's Green and the next day, we had an Open Day Festival Event in the Orchard with a number of crafts and games.

And we continue to hold regular Gardening Days in the Orchard where we look after the trees and keep the Orchard tidy.
