The end of Summer

Although our weekly, tree tending evenings had to stop because of fading light, our work is nowhere finished (is it ever?). Luckily for you, we’ve got some interesting events lined up for the coming months and we hope to see many of our members attending one or even more.

Apple day at Horsenden Farm

This Appleday -Saturday the 25th-, we’ll be at one of the stalls to tell you all about the plans for a new community orchard at Horsenden Farm. Orchards are a priority habitat for biodiversity, providing food and shelter for a wealth of wildlife. Working in an orchard reduces stress and anxiety. We are available this Saturday to answer all your questions on all things orchard, our orchard trail and the benefits for nature and people.

Saturday Orchard working days

The second Saturday of every month (except December) is ‘working Saturday’. Usually, we take on a task that needs more hands and time than our evening sessions. If you want to know where we are working, please register here Volunteer Email and you will receive an email with all the information, closer to the date. The planned activities will sometimes change last minute because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances and our volunteers email is the best way to stay in the loop. The planned dates are the following;

  • Saturday 9th October (Blackberry Corner),
  • Saturday 13th November (renewing labels, recce of trees and pruning needed)
  • Saturday 8th January 2022 (Pruning / Mulching)
  • Saturday 12th February 2022 (Pruning / Mulching)
  • Saturday 12th March (to be announced)

Annual General Meeting 2021

It’s nearly that time of the year again, the time for our genuinely important and not quite so terribly serious AGM

 Wednesday 3th November, 2021

 at 72, St Margaret’s Road, Hanwell W7 2HF.

Start-time 19:30

I am happy to announce that this is our fifth AGM. None of the founding members expected the project to fail quickly, but I suppose we all share some pride in the fact that we made it so far, and the project still is very much alive and ticking after 7 years.

All members of the Hanwell & Norwood Green Orchard Trail are entitled to attend and vote at the AGM. Come along and cast your vote, share some nibbles, thoughts and suggestions, catch up with the latest plans, craziest ideas and help us continue to function as an organisation. (Please email to confirm your attendance. There is no charge for attendance at the AGM.)
