In 2010 to celebrate the club reaching 60 years we undertook a major project to create a community orchard in Townhill in Dunfermline. We worked closely with several partners and eventually the orchard took shape and was successfully planted.
As we now approach our 70th year as a club we are planning to plant more trees to replace some of those which haven’t survived and will do this to support Soroptimist International celebrating 100 years.
In June 2020 Sheila visited the orchard and found it growing well with lots of wild flowers and insects. She met a young woman and her daughter who said they love to visit the orchard and look for snails and bugs. It is nice to know the orchard is being used by the local community.
