You are cordially invited to our Apple Celebration event at Roundway Orchard in Devizes on Saturday 14th October, from 1pm to 4pm.
Come along and join us in picking this year's crop of apples – some will be pressed to make the Trust's very own mouth-watering apple juice and you are also welcome to take some home with you. We will be picking up to one-third of the crop, leaving plenty of apples to provide essential winter feed for wildlife over the coming months.
The event will also be the perfect opportunity to see the results of all the work that has taken place in the Orchard over the last six months thanks to your financial support. The site now boasts a large wildflower bed – seeded with wildflower seeds from our Clattinger Farm Nature Reserve, a beetle bank and a couple of picnic benches so visitors can sit down and enjoy the surroundings. You will also have the opportunity to meet the team of staff and volunteers whose work has transformed the site into the wildlife haven it is today.
Activities on the day will include:
Dipping apples in chocolate
Peeling the longest peel competition
If you would like to come along, please let us know by replying to this email. You will need to wear old clothes and stout shoes and bring a small bag if you'd like to take some apples home with you. Refreshments will be available.
We look forward to seeing you there.
With best wishes,
