A most enjoyable and successful event was staged by the society on the ‘national apple day’, being attended by visitors from many areas of the country. There were over 100 varieties of apples on display, plus other fruits such as pears, grapes and even figs. There was apple tasting and fruit identification available. It was pleasing to note that as well as the adults, many children were trying and enjoying the apple tasting experience. For the more ‘discerning palate’, there was cider and perry tasting, this being extremely popular! The apple press seemed to be a constant source of interest. The society provided rolls for sale which were filled with delicious pork, apple sauce and stuffing. It was noted that the ‘pork crackling’ which was available at the counter seemed to disappear at a fast rate. Further refreshments in the form of hot and cold drinks plus homemade cakes were also available. Also on sale was a large selection of delicious homemade jams. Many other stalls/displays were set up in the village hall, such as for nurseries, beekeepers and the local history society. We hope that everyone attending had an enjoyable and interesting time. A selection of photographs are available to view on the ‘gallery’ page of this website under ‘Apple Day 2012’.
