Orchard Grand Opening Fete - Sunday 31 July



Here's a warning order for you all to put in your diaries. We will hold the Grand Opening fun day and are already booking events, stalls, guests etc. As an example, pictured is Tony Kelly, who has kindly offered to play for us on that date...many thanks!

Other activities currently booked are a bee-keeping demo, children's face painting, home made local jams/ preserves etc stall, WW2 vehicles, barbecue and bar (with a "pimp your Pimms" station using Orchard produce!)...and much, much more to follow!

The Mayor's office have also confirmed that she'll be attending

Water for the Orchard Achieved

We are pleased to announce that we have raised sufficient funds, via the Spacehive crowd funding site, to have a permanent water supply installed in the Orchard. This will require Thames Water to tap into the mains for a new supply and connect to a standpipe. We are currently in the process of collecting the pledged funds and hope to begin the installation process in the near future.

This facility will obviate the need to depend upon neighbours' domestic water supplies.

Many thanks to all who generously donated to this cause and hence facilitate this major infrastructure project.
