Grantham pupils and volunteers help plant Heroes Community Orchard
Pupils from Grantham’s National Junior School joined the second tree planting session for the town’s Heroes Commemorative Orchard.
The school fund-raised to help create the orchard, near Wyndham Park, and joined Wyndham Park Forum volunteers and orchard supporters to help plant 75 trees to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of Second World War and Allied military efforts.
They were given guidance by Easton Walled Gardens’ head gardener Ollie Ryan-Moore, who helped to plant a special Squadron apple tree to add to heritage apple, cherry, pear and plum trees supplied by the East of England Apples and Orchards project.
