Plant an orchard in East Greenwich Pleasaunce Sun 5 Dec 2010

Transition Westcombe and Friends of the East Greenwich Pleasaunce are having an orchard planting, cider libation-ing, festive singing event on Sunday 5th December 2010 at the East Greenwich Pleasaunce near Westcombe Park station.

The following text is culled from the Transition Westcombe mailing list:-

Planting: 11:30 to 1.15, followed by speeches and cider
Location: south-west corner of the fenced dog-free area

Afterwards the Friends of EGP will have a carol festival with mulled wine and Santa, and the park cafe (Pistachios) will be providing refreshments.

Hopefully below there should be a map…
