Apple Day at Wandlebury
October 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm BST
2G3S Apple Day, Wandlebury, 1 – 4 pm Saturday 5 October 2019
We held a successful Apple Day with Cambridge Past, Present and Future and Orchards East at Wandlebury on Saturday 5 October. Activities included:
- Guided walks around the Wandlebury Orchard
- Fruit and nut identification
- Talk on the care of fruit trees
- Apple juicing
- Talk on cooking with apples – samples and recipes
- Talk on cider making
- Archery for adults (and soft archery for children)
- The Cambridgeshire Beekeepers’ Association [CBKA] with information about all pollinators and a glass observation beehive
- Activities for children, including crafts and games, and story reading by well-known children’s author ISABEL THOMAS
- information about local environmental and horticultural groups
The weather was kind to us on the day; unfortunately the season hadn’t been a good one for apples and the juicers got off to a rather slow start! But all in all a very enjoyable afternoon.
