On Saturday 21st October it’s the well-established Apple Day market, now in its sixth year.

Now a firm favourite this event celebrates our favourite national fruit and its local harvest. This year will see the usual array of appley produce and displays of different varieties of apple grown in the village. Star attraction Paul Hand of Bees and Trees will be with us again with lots of children's activities and fun and there'll be games such as 'Splat the Apple' plus the best dressed apple competition (see below). Morris Dancers, Ryknild Rabble Morris will entertain with their sword and other dances.

And of course the WFEG apple press will be on hand so we can turn your surplus apples into delicious juice for you to take away. Apples should be of reasonable quality and do bring along a container to take away your pressed juice. So please pick those apples (eaters and cookers) – it's been a bumper crop this year - and store them until 21st! If you don't have your own apples don't worry - 2017 organic apple juice from local apples will again be on sale. If you have apples but really can't pick them yourself, call or text Mike on 07932 757826 and we'll see what we can do to help.

On top of all that the normal range of fabulous food will be on sale from our local producers – and WFEG will again be selling spring bulbs at amazing prices! 9.30am - 1pm in the Bell Inn Car Park. It all adds up to loads of family fun!
