Parish council receives Community Orchard grant
North Weald Bassett Parish Council has been awarded a grant of £1,350 from Essex County Council's Community Initiatives Fund to create a Community Orchard.
The orchard will be established on three unused Queens Road allotments.
Work has started to clear the area.
The council has also received £290 compensation from Thames Water after the area had an historic sewerage problem.
