Events normally held throughout the year at the Orchard Centre include:
The Wassail in late January, early February.                                                                                                Moth nights – set up by the moth group,  with toast served in the morning when the traps are       opened and moths recorded – various times.                                                                                            Dawn chorus walk in May on National Dawn Chorus day, followed by breakfast outside.                  About 30 birds are usually heard – hopefully including the cuckoo and rare Cetti’s warbler.          Perry Pear displays in late September – about 90 varieties depending on the year!                         With sales of perry, cider and apple juice made at the centre.

A Bioblitz day was scheduled for 2020 – a new venture – hopefully it may happen in 2021!
