Devizes fruit harvest call for help
3:00pm Sunday 20th October 2013 in Latest News
THE Drews Pond Wood Project group, which successfully raised cash to purchase the orchard on the grounds of the former Roundway Hospital in Devizes, has appealed for volunteers to help harvest the fruit its members have inherited.
The apples from the orchard will be juiced by A Becketts vineyard in West Lavington. Some of the product will be returned to the group, who are negotiating to sell it and raise money.
Group leader Stuart Hislop said: “We will be picking from 10am on Saturday and Sunday and we would welcome anyone prepared to come along and help. The money will provide essential funding for the woodland.”
Call Mr Hislop on 07853 299074.
