David Purkiss, Lynda Brown and Richard Paget plant an apple tree in Priory Gardens
Marlborough’s dream of creating a ‘Town within an Orchard’, is well underway with the planting of four new apple trees in the town centre.
The Community Orchard team was out in force recently planting new apple trees in three prominent sites.
He was aided by Lynda Brown, and supervised by town council head gardener David Purkiss. The new tree, situated near Fyfe Saddler’s memorial bench, will bear dessert apples.
Anyone interested in sharing the labours and fruits of community trees, and would like to be part of this initiative should contact Philippa Davenport on 01672 512949.
