Carlton Gardening Group

The Carlton Gardening Group was formed to oversee the creation and management of the Carlton Diamond Jubilee Orchard for the enjoyment and benefit of the public, and to encourage public involvement in this project. The Group now also contributes to the management of the Churchyard and Cemetery, and other public spaces in the parish. The pictures below show the wildflower meadow in May (pink) and June (white).
