I am happy to confirm that Cambridge Apple Day is all set for Sunday 2 October.
Last year was a record-breaker (read all about it here: 2015 Apple Day) and we’re looking forward to another great event this year. Fingers crossed for good weather.
It’s time to start looking out for apples to scrump. We can use any type of apple and the more variety the better.
Remember to always ask before you scrump, but don’t be afraid to ask. Most people with apple trees don’t know what to do with them and you’ll probably be doing them a favour by putting them to good use. Prizes as ever for the most audacious scrump.
If you need an incentive, we’ve got some delicious bottled cider that’s ready now. Come and get a few bottles to say thanks for the apples.
This year we’re trialing Eventbrite to manage RSVPs, so that we know how many people to expect on the day. If you haven’t received an invite by email yet, drop me (Phil) an email, text, facebook message, dm on twitter, or shout at me in the street, and I’ll send you an invite.
Apologies to the many people who’ve asked, but the Cambridge Apple Day is still an invite only affair. We currently hold it in Phil and Jane’s back garden, and while we want to open it up to the public one day, we aren’t able to do that yet.
