Apple Day


Apple Day was celebrated on September 30th at Eastham Country Park.

Local apples were on display with a record 32 varieties picked from orchards at Brimstage Hall, Upton Hall School and Willaston and some from our volunteers.

Apples ready to be tasted.



















The traditional apple press was used to make delicious juice and children are always keen to help....

























.......and to taste it.



















Slightly less strenuous is seeing how long a piece of peel you can get from an apple using our peeling machine. 





















Children also coloured in apple pictures and wrote poems to glue on our wooden tree.




We know that the group held an Apple Day in 1996 and every year since then.

Recently we have been lucky enough to have Mersey Morris Men with us.


















A day to truly celebrate the British apple.
