Charlie to help plant orchard

Have your say

GREEN-fingered TV presenter Charlie Dimmock is helping local school children plant a fruit orchard in Chesterfield.

Charlie, who stars as the Organic Fairy in this year’s Pantomime at the Pomegranate Theatre, will lend a hand to plant 40 trees at Moston Walk, Grangewood Farm with children from Parkside Primary School.

Councillor Stewart Bradford from Chesterfield Borough Council said: “We’re delighted Charlie has agreed to help the children with the planting. I’m sure it will make the event all the more memorable as they see the trees grow over the years and the local community benefits from the fruit.”

The orchard planting takes place at 11am on Friday.
