Building a shelter for pruners

Today, Freddie (a regular helper for the Trust) and I constructed a temporary shelter in the upper orchard to harbour chilly pruners during lunch breaks and teas. We bought a 7m x 11m tarpaulin from Stow Agricultural Services in Stow-on-the-Wold and chose a south facing side to one of the more magnificent trees. One of the biggest challenges was ensuring we created more than just a huge apple sail!

Poking the fire - an age old tradition.

In sunny weather the sides can be rolled up for a more 'alfresco' feel.
