Wylam Community Orchard (WCO) won the UK Meadows and Grasslands Award 2016. The five year-old project is in the grounds of Wylam First School and has 2000 square metres of restored wild flower meadow with 85 fruit trees in a south-facing site overlooking the River Tyne. The project is entirely volunteer-run.
WCO manages the site for biodiversity and undertakes surveys of bats, moths, butterflies, bees, wasps and flowers. Results show a year on year improvement. Come and see the beautiful meadow in flower.
