COCO is the Conderton and Overbury Community Orchard.

This is a lovely place for local tenants and residents to come together to look after the orchard, learn new skills, do things as a family and meet new friends. Members can join in at events throughout the year.

Don’t take our word for it. Here is what existing members have to say.
