Brimstage Hall Orchard Blossom Day

Wirral Tree Wardens look after the Orchard at Brimstage Hall.

They are open to visitors again on Saturday 29th April when there is a chance that more of the apple blossom will be fully out. It's technically a volunteer working day, so they are asking visitors (including children) to act as volunteers and take pictures of the individual trees. This will add to their website records and a small exhibition of the images of the orchard at its best. Phone images, drawings, chalkings, paintings, all are welcome. There will be an apple-related prize for the best one. They also have a Wirral apple tree variety to name - good tasty red apples with reddish-tinted flesh that was grafted from an anonymous original in West Kirby.

Go along from 11am to 2pm and if the weather's fine, take a picnic and a blanket to sit on under the trees!
