Community Orchard at Thackeray Drive!

The playing field at Thackeray Drive has a long history as an area of fruit orchards alongside the many market gardens which thrived before the many houses in Vicars Cross were built.

In partnership with Mersey Trees and Chester and Cheshire West Council, there have been over 100 trees planted around the football pitches on Thackeray Drive field.  Walkways have been left between the trees so that the grass can be cut and Dynamos Football Club have been involved in the planning process.

Great Boughton Parish Council would like to thank everyone who has been involved, particularly Roger Goulding from CWaC who coordinated the project.
