ST IVES APPLE DAY – Sunday 9th October
The merry band of volunteers at St.Ives Community Orchard, would like to invite everyone to join them at their first Apple Day on Sunday 9th October. They have plenty of reasons to celebrate – Cornwall County Council have officially handed over the orchard lease to the group for six years and they have great plans for the future.
Apple Day will start at 2pm at The Orchard which is situated in the Palemon Best Recreational Park in Penbeagle. The Orchard is in a hidden spot between the industrial estate and the skatepark and despite the fact that it belongs to the people of St.Ives, many aren’t aware of its existence. The Orchard Community Group hope that Apple Day will reintroduce the Orchard to the people of St.Ives and those from further afield. There will be music, mulled cider, apple games and kids activities. The campfire menu includes baked potatoes with bean stew followed by marshmallows and baked apples.
