The exciting way for you to build prosperous and vibrant local areas across the borough of Ealing!
A mini orchard in the grounds of St Mary's Church, a community hub, in West Twyford. Initially this will comprise 12 native fruit trees including apples, pears and cherries. The project will utilise the churches' extensive grounds and bring them into beneficial use for leisure and food production that can be enjoyed by the whole community in a neighbourhood with little green space. It will be complemented by the existing tranquil Garden of Remembrance where a new bench will be located. This will provide a further community benefit in that much of the work will be undertaken by a Payback Team. Local volunteers recruited by the church from the surrounding area will oversee the project. It is envisaged that supervised use may be by children and young people from the neighbourhood including those involved in community activities in the church's hall. A key focus will be an Annual Apple Day as a community event drawing people in from across West Twyford.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project will bring a significant underused green space into community use. This will be an amenity which delivers an orchard for enjoyment and harvesting by local people, especially those on low incomes.
