Here is Jonathan’s message to the volunteers
There’ll be a volunteer session at Fairfield Orchard, Fauna and Flora
this Saturday, October 10th, starting at 10.00am and finishing at 1.00pm
If you’re able to tag along, here’s how you might possibly expect to pass
* Planting out newly donated wildflower plants.
* Removing the old willow protruding into the apple Orchard in the newly
cut back area by the alder trees.
* Repairing the hazel fence into Upper Sowerholme from the Hay Meadow.
* Continuing to trim the vegetation overhanging the track down from
Sunnyside Lane past the Shed.
* Collecting and repairing the ‘Don’t pick too early’ signs from the Orchard.
* Mowing the newly cleared areas in the Orchard.
* Clearing the grass and vegetation around the apple tree adjacent to the
Stump Circle. Cutting back adjacent branches to give it room.
* Starting the hedge trimming process, I suggest with the Pads footpath
alongside the Orchard and the south side of the Paddock.
* Starting the process of slashing and clearing vegetation at the south
end of the Orchard.
From the Thank You desk, the organizers of Apple Day wish to send
heartfelt thanks to all those who were able to assist with the mantling
and subsequent dismantling of equipment. Thank you. It’s much appreciated.
Our friends and allies at the Lancashire Wildlife Trust have a full Winter
Program of events in which to engage.
Please see the attached, erm, attachment for information about Working
Party activities at Warton Crag.
Details will also be appearing shortly on their webpage, where you can
read about what else they’re up to. Point your internet at

And that’s about it from me for this time,
