Funding from St Ives Community Fund

Thank you so much to St Ives Community Fund who has donated £450 towards our orchard. This will help us grow & continue our development of the orchard. Wonderful to have this local support.

We are going to buy more much needed tools, pay for some strimming in the orchard and snacks for the hard working orchard volunteers (we always supply fruit & biscuits at the work parties). We are also putting some of this money towards getting in a fabulous green woodworker for our Apple day as well as a Beekeeper to talk to us about what’s involved in keeping bees. And hopefully keeping some over for a rainy day.

They also gave £450 towards our skatepark project which went towards hiring a skateramp for the event in the Guildhall which publicised the project.
