Stamford Community Orchard Group plans apple day

Have your say

WITH summer coming to a close the Stamford Community Orchard Group is already planning this year’s Stamford Apple Day, with more than 1,000 visitors expected on the day.

The event, to be held at Stamford Arts Centre, on October 6, is shaping up to be to be bigger and better than ever.

The East of England Apples and Orchards Project will be bringing along many different varieties of English apples, with experts on-hand to identify the apples that people bring along on the day, hoping to find some of the long-lost Stamford apple varieties.

The group will be dispensing invaluable advice to people on how to sort out problems and look after the apple trees in their gardens.

As well as the apple identification there will be a tombola and stalls selling apple related gifts and produce and a selection of games, like apple bobbing.
