Apple day celebrations
Members of the village came together to meet with Nicky Bailey from the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Unit, to chat about ideas for the community orchard. The area is well used and much loved by residents of Holbeton and would benefit from a bit of regular tree maintenance, some new planting and an action plan for its development.
Nicky worked with Penny Callcut to put in a bid to the Big Greenspace Fund for a programme of works and exciting community events and activities – and we have been successful in securing just over £9000!
Penny said “ your bit here!”
Nicky will work to support the group through this project but we would love to invite members of the community to come along and get involved! The newly formed HCOG (Holbeton Community Orchard Group!) needs new members and interested hangers-on to enjoy the fruits of this project. Come along to the Community Orchard Open Event at the Village Hall on Saturday 26th January between 2pm and 4pm to find out more about the project and help shape the plans over a cup of tea and some cake!
