The historic St Laurence Orchard situated near Southend Airport is managed by Trust Links on behalf of Southend Borough Council.
The site is very tranquil and offers a quiet, peaceful space for people and wildlife. The orchard is planted with apple, pear and plum trees and offers an abundant harvest.
We run working party days to restore and maintain the orchard. These are scheduled for May 8, June 12, July 10, September 11, October 2. Volunteers are always welcome. Hot drinks and tools are provided but volunteers need to bring their own lunch.
In October we hold an Apple Day in the orchard with an opportunity to try and buy produce from the orchard and celebrate the harvest. Check our event calendar for the date.
If you’d like to join a working party you can just come along. Come for the whole day or just part of the day.
