Friends of the Orchard

Brief Description of Organisation

A community group which is the first point of contact for the public space at The Orchard, Broadmoor Lane in Weston, Bath.

Full Description of Organisation

We are a volunteer group who steer the direction of our treasured open space on Broadmoor Lane, encouraging community participation and environmental responsibility. Since 2018, we carry on the community spirit of the now-retired Broadmoor Lane Residents' Association (1991-2018).


We organise regular community events in the Orchard, and also publish an occasional newsletter Broadmoor Views.  In 2017, the Royal Horticultural Society awarded our work in the Orchard as 'Outstanding', putting it amongst the most celebrated community spaces nationwide. You can read our new Landscape and Ecological Management Plan for the Broadmoor Lane open space here, detailing info on local flora and fauna.


We are passionate about our local community and invite everyone who uses the Orchard on Broadmoor Lane to get involved! To find out more, read up on our current and past local issues.
