Peace Orchard for Coventry

Thursday 29th September, 2016

The orchard will commemorate soldiers who fell among the apple orchards of Normandy during the Battle of Normandy between June and August 1944 and is the brainchild of 93 year-old decorated Coventry Normandy veteran, Dennis Davison. Accompanied by on-site and digital information, the orchard will be a practical and enjoyable way of learning about the significance of these historical events, Coventry’s role as the City of Peace and Reconciliation and how to make cider and apple pies!
