In April 2019, Trees for Cities and the London Borough of Newham planted a 20-fruit tree orchard in New Beckton Park, with 226 local adults and children. There was a celebratory event for the public and local schools on Friday 28th June, to mark the official opening of the orchard.
Gallions were invited to perform at the opening and we brought our Y1 & Y2 afterschool singing club. Led by Miss Kamara the children performed a selection of songs to locals, parents and Children from North Beckton Primary School. The children were brilliant and it was a great opportunity to go out and perform in the community.
