A mini orchard has been planted at Pill’s Crockerne Primary School.

A cherry, apple, plum and pear tree were planted – representing each class name – after Western Power Distribution donated them.

Members of the Forest of Avon Trust helped plant the trees which will be cared for and maintained by children from the school.

The trees’ first harvest is expected to arrive in the autumn.
