Hi Carol,

I realise you may not have seen this that I put into a discussion thread, rather than here. So apologies for that.

Good news!

I have been given permission to plant these on a public site owned by Williton Parish Council, so if you would give me a time when and how I can contact you, I can tell you more. Thanks. I hope you still have them available.

Kind Regards David

Carole - I may be able to help guide you to older orchards ... in somerset and wiltshire (though a bit further away)

Also your post was targeted at Somerset Orchards - it was a cooperative selling apple juice, my sister was involved setting up and running it, but sadly it has ceased trading,  though I would be happy to make introductions

my direct email  is richard@pagets.org.uk

kind regards

Richard

It works!  PS can I come and watch the editing (having missed almost all of the conference!)

Hey Carol

I told Nicole I'm not available for this and next week. After that should be OK. The only thing is that once you start editing you usually set the tone and style for the documentary, so that the others would follow. So if it's you to start then you'll be the Big Chief Editor!
