TARVES COMMUNITY ‘ORCHARD WAY’ NAMED IN CEREMONY

The community orchard in Bede Way, Tarves was the scene for a ceremony, blessing the orchard for the coming year by Susanna Bichard, the local lay preacher for the Kirk and especially to mark the naming of the Orchard Way on Monday 28th December.

IMAG0362A plaque, naming the orchard avenue, Dick’s Way in memory of Richard (Dick) Reville was unveiled at the ceremony by Anne Reville his wife and son John.

The first phase of the community orchard was planted at the beginning of 2015 by PUT community Co-op (Pitmedden Udny Tarves) along with the Tarves amenities group and Community Council.

Orchard Project organiser Paul Johnston said:

“The idea to name the orchard was discussed by all three groups and the idea to name it after Dick was unanimously suggested to Anne to honour the work that Dick had done for all of the village amenities.  Flower beds, tubs, Christmas lights, and the hall, all had his helping hands.”

Paul Johnston explained “People believed that naming the Orchard Way after Dick was a celebration of his achievements.  Orchards and gardens are part of the circle of life and as the orchard grows and future generations enjoy its blossom and see its fruits, we can remember those two made our community what it is”

The event was supported by the Community Council represented by its chairman Bob Davidson and David Hekelaar, secretary and others including David Presly from the Melvin Hall Committee.
