Our 16th annual Apple Day takes place on Sunday October 4th, from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm, adults £1, children free.
We will have, as always, over 100 varieties of apple on display – the majority of which you will not have seen before (unless at an apple day like ours!) – and some will be very rare. We get these from the national scientific collection of fruit at Brogdale near Faversham in Kent http://www.brogdalecollections.org/
Andy Howard of the Heritage Fruit Tree Company will be here again with his green boots, expertise and trees to sell and you’ll be able to grab a bite of an apple-on-string (or not!) The wee hand apple press will be out for juice-on-the-go and sonia will be making her corn dollies out of beautifully scented organic wheat.
Entertainment is cool jazz from Valentinos and the jumping unicorn with the happy Westminster Morris Men (and there might be an encounter with a dragon).
There will be a good selection of stall holders – such as Pennard Plants with their heritage seeds, Corrine with her bee jewellery, metal garden sculpture from Critchleys, London honey with Sharon and there will be teas and cakes from the Roots kitchen/shop (oh, and a BBQ).
It’ll be good – come along, the weather always holds (?!!!)
