The Community Orchard Group ﬁrst met on 20 January 2011, after a suggestion from the Parish Council’s Parish Plan. The group (Ian Dobson, Jill Maidment, Val Keel and Nicky Morris), found a suitable location at High House Farm on Wymondham Road, though the courtesy and agreement of the Lucchetti family.
The trees, Norfolk apple varieties, were planted during a National Tree Week in 2011.
The new owners, in 2017, are willing to support the access arrangements agreed with the Community Orchard Group.
We now aim to build a good working relationship with the owners of High House Farm and are looking for local people to lend an occasional helping hand to maintain the orchard. Being on private land our agreement requests prior permission is obtained before a visit.
Ring Ian if you want to get involved or to view the Wreningham Diamond Jubilee Community Orchard, on 01508 489725.
