Each year the Friends organise events in the Orchard to involve the local community and enhance their awareness and enjoyment of this special green space. These events mark the seasons – a spring event in May to enjoy the trees in blossom and the carpets of flowers in the meadow, and an autumn event in October to gather and press the apples. The Friends also hope to revive the ancient west country tradition of a wassail in January, when the trees are encouraged to be fruitful in the coming year with incantations and songs.
Other events are arranged at the request of local groups like the Cubs and Brownies or one of the local schools.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is generally held between February and April and is open to all members.
