The Orchard in Thundridge known as 'Jean's Orchard' is a community orchard project left in trust by local resident Jean Hobbs who sadly passed away in November 2016. Towards the end of her life she had been investigating ways in which she could give the orchard land to the surrounding villages to be developed and managed as a 'Community Orchard'.
The orchard idea was launched in June 2017 by Jean's family after testing the idea with the community and found that it would be a viable and worthwhile exercise. This is a young orchard which will grow over time and be a great place to visit, relax in and take stock of what is going on in the world.
