Bradford Apple Group AGM

4 Dec 2012 - 19:15

The AGM will be held at the Ring O Bells (back room), Shipley.

We will review Apple Day 2012 and other related activities in the past year, but the focus of the meeting will be

1. type and location of event or events next year

2. revisit the Awards for All bid; content and supporting evidence

Business will start at 7.30pm so we are suggesting arriving at 7pm for preamble.

Apple Day 2012

This year's Apple Day Celebrations are on Sunday 7th October, 12-4pm, Bowling Park Community orchard.

As well as the regular food, sales, juice, games and advice we have a special art project on offer.

We have been lucky enough to secure a visit from a solar powered Pink Milkfloat! It houses an old fashioned printing press and will set up for the day so people can have a go at printing their own Appley Posters...or whatever.

National Apple Day

21 Oct 2010 -
21 Oct 2010 -

Apple day is a celebration of the diversity of our fruit heritage.

Only a handful of apple varieties are available in the shops, yet over 6000 varieties have been grown in the past. Nearly 2000 apples are grown at the national collection at the Brogdale Horticultural Trust in Kent.

Common Ground, a national charity that encourages people to recognise the distinctiveness of 'the place', instigated Apple Day in 1990. It is now an established date in the festive calendar and is celebrated annually on or near 21st October. The apple was chosen as an iconic symbol for all the fruit and nuts that are grown in this country.
