May events from the Mid Shires Orchard Group




SPRING BLOSSOM PICNIC: WOUGHTON ORCHARDS

Date: Saturday 11th May, from 1.00pm onwards, for as long as you want! 
Venue: Woughton Orchards, off Newport Road, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, MK6 3BD

Pack a picnic, put your blanket out under the spreading branches of the old cider apple trees and enjoy a lazy lunch outdoors, under the blossom. Throw a Frisbee, bob an apple, read a book, chat with friends, make a den with your kids, throw the ball for a dog, sketch the scenery, play a guitar – whatever you enjoy. We’ll have the kettle on and the cider chilling! Price: FREE – but don’t forget to bring a picnic!

Date: Saturday 18th May, from 2.00pm to 6.00pm

Join us for bramble-bashing and undergrowth clearing around the orchards, ‘Secret Six’ apple trees and the Plum Hedge. Help us get the orchard ready for summer pruning and our mowing, raking and mulching regime. Bring work gloves, pruning shears, loppers and scrub-clearing tools, or borrow ours.
