Sovereign Health Care Charitable Trust have given funding to Bradford Apple Group to support practical management of the orchard. 

This grant, directed towards BEES as managers of the orchard, first supported some of the summer work; restrictive pruning of the cordons and espaliers, mulching the trees to control the vegetation growth and mowing the paths through the grass.

Unlucky for some!

Sorry, we have had to cancel Friday's trip to St Ives. We will go in June instead.

Sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment.

September sees the 30th anniversary of BEES delivering environmental education activities in Bradford.

We will kick off our celebration with cake at BEES Urban Nature Reserve on Tuesday 15th September 2.30-4.30pm. 

We will also aknowledge the landmark achievement at the Orchard on Friday 18th September. We have our conservation task there that day so drop in at any time between 11am and 3pm, though best bet for cake would be lunch time.
