Leap­ing into Frog Or­chard

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Countryfile -

A PUB­LIC open space has been re­named Frog Or­chard fol­low­ing a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion. Tay­lor Grif­fiths, of East Stour Pri­mary School, won a com­pe­ti­tion to re-name the nearby South Willes­bor­ough Or­chard dur­ing a com­mu­nity pic­nic. Lo­cal chil­dren had put in sug­ges­tions for a new name and Tay­lor made his choice based on the area pre­vi­ously be­ing known as Frog Is­land. The spe­cial day at the or­chard, be­tween Earlsworth Road and Her­bert Road, also in­cluded a tree plant­ing by lo­cal chil­dren. The event was or­gan­ised by the Ken­tish Stour Coun­try­side Project, to pro­mote lo­cal open spa­ces.
