Help Whitwell Parish Council Plant a Second Orchard Hedge

As part of Bolsover District Council’s (BDC) Community Woodlands Project We are creating a traditional village orchard for Whitwell.

We have 670 hedging whips to plant in a 112m long double row of mixed native species hedgerow.  This will be amazing for wildlife and provide much needed shelter for the orchard and bungalows.

Staff and pupils from Whitwell Junior school, Scouts and Guides, Parish Councillors, the Bolsover Community Woodlands project and community volunteers came together to plant the first 270 native hedging whips for National Tree Week.

You are now invited to join volunteers on Saturday 14th January between 10.00am-3.00pm to help plant a further 670 whips along the boundary. You will need to wear protective clothing, wellies or sturdy boots and bring gardening gloves, spades and wheelbarrows if you have them please.

Katherine Church, BDC’s Community Woodlands Project Officer is organising the day so please get in contact with her or the Parish Council if you have any questions or would like to let her know you are coming email: Katherine.church@bolsover.gov.uk  Tel: 01246 242414.

It would also be good to form an orchard planning and support group with residents involved, so please let the Parish Council know if this would interest you.

Planting of orchard fruit trees will be arranged for Wednesday 22nd February.  We have selected a date during half term in the hope that children will be able to attend with their families, as those that attended the hedge planting with school really enjoyed the experience.

Please see the plan below to help you find the orchard, which is the triangle piece of land (points A-D) on the outskirts of the village accessible via a footpath from Claylands Road (point E).
