Open Orchard party tonight

Open Orchard is celebrating the end of the tree planting season with a party tonight Friday 13 May, 6-8pm at the L’arche
Garden Lodge, 21 Idmiston Road, West Norwood, SE27 9HE

Whether you bought a tree, sponsored the Open Orchard’s work, got involved in planting, tweeted, liked or simply supported what they do, this party is for you.

There will be a potluck dinner at the lovely L’Arche Garden Lodge on Idmiston
Road, West Norwood- one of the orchard locations from 2015. Please bring a dish
to share – Open Orchard will provide some cider, made from apples some of
the volunteers picked last year. And for those that want to carry on the celebration,
they plan to head to a local pub afterwards. 

So they know you are coming, and to avoid everyone bringing quiche, please RSVP here.

Projects like the Open Orchard are what makes us so proud to be councillors in Thurlow Park and West Norwood – this is a community where people get involved and make positive changes happen. We want to do all we can to support community projects like this, so if you have an idea but you’re not sure of the next steps, please get in touch.
