The orchard, which is close to the airport, is currently badly overgrown, but with several different varieties of eating and cooking apples in it, is set to become an excellent community resource.
Alan Gibson is leading therejuvenation and commented, “This donation is really going to help transform the orchard. The first job is to prune the trees ready for the new growth in the spring. We’re thrilled to have had the offer of both financial and physical help from the airport, as the orchard’s in a great plane spotting location!”

Lucy Calvert, Marketing & Communications Executive at Southampton Airport, commented, “This is exactly the kind of project that the Southampton Airport Community Fund looks to support. Not only have we been able to give financial support, but it provides us with a great opportunity for staff volunteering now, and in the future.”
