The English Apple Man


13th Oct 2023 - The English Apple Man joins a community enjoying their Orchard.

Last Saturday, custodians and the community at Five Oak Green gathered to celebrate their Community Orchard.


The orchard inspired by Celia (it was her idea) and Roger Worraker as The Diamond Jubilee in 2012 has morphed from The Capel Community Orchard into The Worraker Community Orchard in memory of their status as members of their community.


Planted in 2012, The Worraker Community Orchard produces a wonderful mix of old and present varieties.

Last Saturday was a most enjoyable day, enjoying the sunshine which blessed our gathering, as those who maintain the Community Orchard put on a display of varieties for the visitors from the local community as they gathered; many with young children, which was so appropriate Roger and Celia Worraker who created this wonderful orchard were very focused on the children from the local Capel Primary School were regular visitors to the orchard and beneficiaries' of Roger and Celia's great knowledge.

What an enjoyable 'couple of hours' spent with members of the Five Oak Green and Capel community as they enjoyed the benefits of this wonderful orchard. Forever a testimonial to spent their married years at the heart of their community.
