The Annual General Meeting and Picnic, 2022

Brimstage Orchard, 4th September, 2022: all tree wardens, members and supporters welcome to take part. N.B, not all members are up to date with subscriptions, but the membership secretary will be there to assist!

If we have sufficient requests, we'll be there from

10:30 to look at some of the trees which need remedial work or which give us a chance to graft onto existing stocks. We'll choose some older heritage varieties to replace the existing ones which have proved unsuitable. BUT - we need to know how many people are coming to this early session, whether they want to have a tutored grafting session or whether they want to gather damsons - email Dave to let him know
