MGJ plants orchard as part of world record attempt - 04 December 2009

As part of the biggest tree planting attempt in the UK ever, MGJ have planted 12 apple trees in the school grounds -  yes, we now have our very own orchard. The Guinness World Record attempt will see hundreds of thousands of trees planted and our school will be part of it. A grant for £ 270 given to us by the Surrey Gardens Trust has been used to buy an unusual variety of apple trees. Such names as Lord Derby, Grenadier and surprisingly, Crawley Beauty are now planted in our orchard.
 
Each class has adopted a tree and two children from each class planted them with members of the Friends, governors and teachers on hand too.  A lovely crisp sunny morning added to the enjoyment. We now wait for the spring when the trees will burst into life and it shouldn’t be too long before some scrumptious apples appear.
