This year we've been successful in gaining funds to help our work. Wessex Water's Conservation Foundation has just given us funds to buy some new tools. As we get more volunteers we need things like long-handled apple pickers in the autumn and loppers for pruning in the winter. The money will also contribute to volunteer expenses and help us to buy some new trees - many of the trees in our orchards are starting to age, so it's good to regularly plant young ones. This builds on the money that the Naturesave Trust gave us in last spring - we have some shiny new pruning saws and secateurs thanks to them.
