Islanders and visitors are invited to a blossom day in the community orchard next month.

The Transition Scilly Community Orchard at Trenoweth is six years old this year and will be celebrating with the annual event on May 7th.


"We’ll be sharing juice from the apples and talking about how people can join in to help with caring for this community resource," said Mark Prebble.


He added: "Bring a picnic and some fun!"


The Community Orchard was created in March 2010, with 58 trees planted including apples, sweet chestnuts, plum, medlar, hazels and greengage.


It has since had a new sign, benches and a special memorial stone.


Transition Scilly is a community group that aims to help everyone on Scilly reduce their carbon footprint and embraces local food, renewable energy, sustainable transport and lower energy use.
