Oughtrington Community Orchard
Our aims are:
Back in 2007 to complement our real trees we commissioned North-West sculptor, Adrian Moakes, to work with Lymm High School to create a piece of artwork for the orchard. The Year 9 students did a fantastic job. Adrian used their ideas to inspire the "Celebration Tree" which is now installed so do take a look.
Our activities involve the local community both in the development and use of the orchard. We are proud of our achievements to date, having cleared vast amounts of nettles, brambles and dead trees, pruned surviving trees and installed fencing, seeded grass as well as planting trees and hedging. Local volunteers have worked in all weathers, eaten lots of cake and had lots of fun on the way. Why not join us and take a look at the rejuvenated orchard?
