One of the last remaining old orchards in the area is behind the Rectory next to Oughtrington Community Centre.
There is an opportunity to restore the orchard and to enjoy it. Our project aims to restore and maintain the rectory orchard as a community orchard to provide an amenity for local residents and users of the community centre.

Our aims are:

To promote local character and individuality, by planting up local Cheshire fruit varieties.

To provide a local community facility where outdoor events such as 'Apple Day', Blossom Day etc can be held.

To highlight and encourage seasonality of locally grown produce.

To create a visual reminder of traditional land use and rural traditions.

To show local residents the importance of healthy eating and the natural environment, and encourage them to respect it by involving them in the creation and running of an orchard.
