Preparing for a fruitful 2013…

Clearance at Glenfinart Walled GardenThe first month of the New Year sees some major work going ahead in Glenfinart Walled Garden. Thanks to David Robertson and colleagues from the Forestry Commission the ground has been cleared for the arrival of 30 fruit trees on Thursday, 31st January.

John Forth from the National Park is organizing half a dozen volunteers to help with planting along with our volunteer co-ordinator, John Kloumann. John Hancox from the Children’s Commonwealth Orchard  will be on hand to advise. We plan to have plenty of hot soup and sandwiches. Weather permitting of course, we will be glad to see anyone who would like to lend some time and energy on the day or even to just come and say hello.

Ardentinny Community Trust would like to thank all of the above and also a special thank you to Jim Robinson, Ardentinny, who stepped in during an emergency with good humour , much hard work and expertise! For more information you can contact Bill, Convener, tel. 01369 810238 or Merle, Secretary, tel 01369 810220.
