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.
