Scissett Men’s Shed Considers the idea of a Community Orchard and Gardens


The core team of the emerging Men’s Shed group in Scissett have been been exploring the extensive grounds of St Augustine’s Church.  One area which is heavily overgrown and had in the past been used as allotments. The group considered it may be suitable for a community orchard or gardens.


Photo shows David Curry pointing out the area where there used to be cold frames.

As can be seen, the amount of clearance required is considerable and will keep the Men’s Shed group happily occupied sawing and having bonfires and generally enjoying themselves in the outdoors for many days to come.
