Summer Fair

The Summer Fair is an important date in the Orchard Trust calendar. It is a chance for the local community to visit our site, see the smallholding animals and have some fun and games, all with music and refreshments!
Whether the event is online or a public event, it is an important way for the Trust to share the good work that it does, raise some funds and of course have some fun.
