Sarah Roberts, secretary of the Friends of Bourne Woods, said: “We had a really enjoyable day and everybody had a lot of fun.

“The weather forecast was a bit of a concern but thankfully it held off and it was only wet under foot.

“We borrowed the apple press from the Stamford Community Orchard and made apple juice, which everybody enjoyed - it was scrummy!”

“We also had a craft tent and teas and coffees.

There were also children’s activities including a quiz for which they had to go around orchard looking for the clues hung up in the trees.

Children also made apple jacks to hang on the trees, or take home to ‘ward off evil spirits’.

The results of the Friends of Bourne Woods’ photography competition were also announced. Steve Goddard won first prize, Martin Branhaff was second, with Jason Richardson third.
