Apple Day – Saturday 19th October, 1-5pm

Building on the successes of 2011 and 2012,
with something for everyone including (but not limited to) :
Apple-based games (for example: longest apple peel, apple bobbing)
Stalls, soup, hot chocolate,
Childrens art workshop
The Cromford Apple Pie competition
The Ripley Morris Men

The main focus of the day will be  the serious business of pressing the apples (eaters or cookers) that you bring along. You can drink the delicious results. Or alternatively, local hostelries will be offering traditional ciders whilst stalls will be offering soup, cake and other refreshments. Many of which will be apple based. Many of which will be locally sourced (and we don’t mean from the supermarket!)

We can also press pears, grapes and elderberries if you supply a pillow-case or similar bag to restrain the pulp. All pulp finds a good home on local allotment compost heaps.

This year promises a good harvest!
