Prize draw: a new name for Sandown Wetland Community Orchard
Tell us what you think, and win a prize worth up to £64!
With money from the Big Lottery Fund we’re starting work to enhance Sandown Community Orchard and Wetland Walk in 2018. Thanks to Big Lottery Players we will put in a boardwalk, a new gate, some new benches, a board telling the story of the site and improve the hedge. We also want to get more people to use it, so we are going to need to show people what it can offer, how they can use the free fruit. We decided it needs a new name too.
Gift to Nature is looking for a new name for the beautiful little bit of countryside by the cycletrack at Sandown Waterworks, Longwood Lane (near Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club). Here you can find giant wooden carvings of fruit, real fruit trees with apples and plums to scrump, a pond, and a footbridge over the nearby waterway.
Answer a few questions and you can vote on a name for this popular local picnic spot, and enter a draw to win a tree climbing experience for two worth £64 at Goodleaf Tree Climbing (suitable for anyone aged 8 or over – or an ideal gift!)
