People are being called to help give a historic orchard a new lease of life.

Horticultural group, The London Orchard Project has been looking after the old orchard at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, in Stanmore.

With the help of Harrow charity Hoi Polloi, funding has now been secured for three restorative pruning sessions and members of the public are being called to volunteer.

The sessions will take place on January 27, February 9 and February 17, and will be run by project leaders from the London Orchard Project.

The hoi polloi project aims to create a community orchard across Harrow and those interested in signing for one of the sessions can do so by clicking here.
