The Duke of Gloucester visit to plant the inaugural tree in Burford Community Orchard

The Duke of Gloucester visited Burford on Friday 19th November and planted the inaugural tree on the first of two community orchards which Burford Town Council are planting to contribute to the Queen’s Green Canopy.

This is all part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The orchards will be on Westfield close to the allotments, and on the green next to Oxford Road opposite the Shilton Road turn. Planting will mainly be carried out in early spring next year.
