Coronation Orchard

Environment Group Website

by Terry Smith

PAWARA has received permission from Havant Borough Council to create a community orchard on The Bog (Ladybridge Road) to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. The orchard will be planted in the corner near the car park in the winter, which gives us a few months to decide how we want the orchard to look and raise funds.

The orchard does not need to be in traditional rows. For example, it could be a circle or in the shape of a crown. If you have any thoughts on the design of the orchard, the type or variety of fruit trees you would like to see or if you would like to be involved in some way, please let us know.

A one-year-old bare-rooted apple tree on a dwarfing rootstock is four to five feet tall (1.2 – 1.5 metres) and will grow to 2–2.5 metres when mature. A tree with a stake and tie costs £32 at March 2023 prices from Blackmoor Nurseries.

Donations for the orchard can be paid into the PAWARA bank account (see back page for details). Please use your name and add the word “ORCHARD” as a reference. All contributions, regardless of the value, will be gratefully received and will help to make the orchard a reality.
