REETH COMMUNITY ORCHARD

News and Events>

JULY 2019 and some much appreciated help from young Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteers.

Since the beginning of April, two Duke of Edinburgh participants Jarvis Price and Sam Grigg have been doing their Bronze Service section in Reeth Orchard.  Not only have they eased the workload of the other volunteers there, but have been unfailingly polite and cheerful even when faced with some seriously dirty jobs like digging out the compost heaps and spreading it round the garden.   The photo might give the impression that they were sitting down on the job, but this is another tedious task that they happily took on - weeding the paths.   They say they have enjoyed the learning process and would like to continue helping in the orchard in the future  We hope that their example with be followed by other D. of E. participants.
