Banbury Community Action Group (CAG) members are continuing the planting of an orchard in Browning Road Park, but they need people’s help this weekend.

The orchard, which is sponsored by Banbury Town Council, is part of the wider CAG Oxfordshire project Incredible Edible which seeks to grow and promote real food.

When finished it will be for the benefit of the whole community who can pick the apples and take part in events such as quizzes and fruit pressing.

Anyone can join in this Sunday from 11am-3pm to help plant more than 40 apple trees. Light refreshments and tools will be provided.
