Helping in the Byes

28 Mar

Thanks to the Friends of the Byes (FOTB), Sidmouth now has an established community orchard there, complete with benches!  Like the trees, the group continues to flourish. Here’s their latest message:

Come and join us…

This coming Saturday 29th March, 10am – 12 midday

Meet in the Community Orchard in Sid Meadow at 10am where we will be planting primroses, more trees along the river and clearing up the Water Lane entrance to the Byes.

Contact: Would anyone interested in helping with FOTB volunteer events please e-mail their contact details  to Kati Fitzhenry at , or phone her on 01395 578344 or 07817 041239

This will help us coordinate numbers, achieve more, and make our our time volunteering even more enjoyable. Any suggestions are welcome, on what FOTB volunteers could do to improve the Byes, remembering that we give a couple of hours every other week.

The following Saturday the 5th April

We will be fundraising in the town, to help pay for the wildflower show in Sid Meadow. Obviously all help is very welcome. We will be meeting at the Toll House, entrance to the Byes, at 9:45 and will collect  until midday. Please do come along and help ‘shake a box’.

Contact: To find out more about this event, kindly email Annie Brierley or phone her on 07921 760110
