National Apple Day

Monday, October 21st, 2019

The original National Apple Day - established by Common Ground way back in 1990. The concept, to celebrate traditional orchards, their crops and varieties, as a national festival day is now well-established. The plethora of Apple Days across the country, scattered geographically across the country and scattered in calendar terms across the late September to late October time period, is all due to this original initiative.

We will reschedule the AGM once the progress of the epidemic is clearer.  On current thinking the new date is likely to be some months away, possibly in the autumn. We hope everyone stays safe – and do let committee know if you want…

National Apple Day

Wednesday, 21st, October

It's Apple Day, as usual, on 21st October! National Apple Day was launched in 1990 by Common Ground. Their aspiration was to create a calendar custom, an autumn holiday.

It has also played a part in raising awareness in the…
