  • Tickets on sale for quiz night

    Tickets are now on sale for our Grand Quiz Night to be held in Dunsden Village Hall on Saturday 11 October. They cost just £7, which includes a ploughman's supper and apple pudding. Questions will be test your general knowledge rather than being all about apples. Why not ask friends to join you and make up a team? Full details and tickets from Beth Timms on 0118 946 1987.

    A recent working party was a great success and the orchard is now looking very spruce after its tidy up. Future working parties will include autumn tree planting and boundary clearance.

    Almost 20 people have now sponsored trees and it is hoped to order and attach special commerative tree labels soon. It's not too late if you want to become a member of the orchard or sponsor a tree - just look at the up-to-date plan on this site, and print off and post the application form.

    Don't forget we will also be at the Henley Show Ploughing Match and Country Fayre on Sunday 5 October. The event, which is held at Bishopsland RG4 9NR on the Sonning Common road beyond Dunsden, begins at 9.15am with the blessing of the plough. There will be lots to do for all the family, including ploughing demonstrations by shire horses. There will also be ferret racing, a poultry auction, trailer rides, outside trade stands and craft stands in the marquee. Bar and refreshments available all day. For more see the show website.


  • Orchard amid the flowers

    597c4a1365e6dd28bffcd2b5860fb809.jpg"Orchard? I didn't know there was an orchard at Dunsden!" was the word from quite a few visitors to our very successful stall at the Binfeld Heath Flower Show this weekend. It was good to be able to spread the word - 100 leaflets were taken away by potential new members, and around half a dozen people said they would like to sponsor a tree. Once we have completed forms, certificates will be despatched and commemorative tree labels ordered.
    Our new polo shirts, which are embroidered with the orchard logo, were also all sold, and thanks to the generosity of sponsor Gareth at Supergraphics we now have a new table banner for future events. Thanks to everyone who helped make the day a success. We look forward to seeing people at our next event, the working party on Sunday 14 September.
