Rawah Academy Plant Community Orchard at Myra Shay

IMG_5062 Pupils and parents who attend the Rawah Academy, Saturday school at Lapage School, Barkerend hard at work planting a community orchard.  The Academy raised over £500 to buy a mixture of fruit trees and bushes to create an orchard in Myra Shay recreation ground next to the school.  Staff from Trees and Woodlands and Bradford East Council Wardens helped with providing the trees and equipment.  Everyone is looking forward to the first black currents, gooseberries, apples and pears this summer!
