We had an enjoyable time at Shipley Alternative market last Saturday.
A few people expressed an interest in getting involved with managing the orchard so I thought it was worth a reminder about the Friends of the orchard group.
We are running a market stall at Shipley Alternative on Saturday 7th December.
The market is in Kirkgate Centre. It starts a 10 am and finishes at 2 pm.
As well as our apple products, there will be a variety of stalls selling food, t-shirts, clothes, bags, prints and calendars etc.
Shipley REfill will be there so you can top up your washing up liquid and shampoos etc.
And the cafe is great.
A new wellbeing programme run by the YMCA for 16 – 25 year olds in

We will be tree planting at Ogden Water on Friday.
We hope you can make it.
Welcome to our new website!
After several years of 'deliberation', we have taken the plunge and moved onto to updated software.
We know that we still have work to do to get it all in order and will be working to make corrections and alterations over the coming weeks and months. Please do contact us if you find something is not working correctly.
Thanks for your patience and continued support.
Apple Day is on Sunday 14th October, from 12 noon until 4pm.
There will be the usual array of activities; help out with making fresh juice, enjoy a cake and a falapple wrap, buy some apples form the orchard and some chutney and jams. There will be trees on sale and horticultural advice. If you have an unidentified apple then bring it along with a twig and some leaves to see if Anne can put a name to it. Orchard games and activities throughout the afternoon.
This is a free event but donationand cake sales are essential to go towards the the cost of the event.
If you hope to volunteer please get in touch in advance, thank you.
And some of the apples will ripe and be finished before Apple Day, so if you are interested in fresh, local fruit now then get in touch.
Please have a look at some changes to the conservation volunteer programme
We will be tree planting on Thursday 22nd and 29th March. It would be really good if we can get a good group together to help Forest of Bradford with end of season deadlines.
