Kineton village are looking for your help!

Their upcoming Apple Day (14th October) is short on apples!  The inclement weather this year has meant a the apple crop is 90% down on previous years. 

Does anyone know where there are local communities with excess fruit, or apples that they can scrump?  Or does your community have apples, but no access to an apple press and would perhaps like to join forces with Kineton?

Contact the LEADER team if you are able to help!

  • Bishop's Tachbrook Horticultural and Allotments Society have run a supplies shed for 20 years. The enterprise is run as a cooperative and gives local residents access to competitively priced compost, fetilisers and other growing aids. The 'shed', old shipping container,  had become badly rusted. Water ingress and rodent invasions were damaging stock. The group applied to Get Growing for the replacement of the container in order to allow the continuation of trading.
