Morrisons Wisbech has donated an apple tree to Gorefield Primary School for them to plant and grow their own apples.
Morrisons community champion Deborah Thulborn delivered the three-year-old British apple tree sapling to the children with Sam Stapleton this afternoon.
It was delivered along with two crates of apples so that “children have a chance to taste the fruit which the tree will eventually produce”.
Deborah said: “We hope our British apple tree will be a lovely addition to Gorefield’s school orchard.
“We hope that the children will enjoy watering, pruning and looking after it whilst it grows - and that it bears much fruit for Gorefield school pupils for many years to come.”

The traditional British Greensleeves apple tree will take 10 years to grow to full maturity. When mature it will be four metres tall and will grow enough apples to feed a full class of over 30 Gorefield school pupils.
