Apple Day Quiz Answers



As part of our fundraising activities we thought you might like to know that we have managed to raise circa £2,600 in tree and log sales. 

We have kept a wide selection of the apple trees, including some rarer varieties to create out very own Jubilee Orchard at the far end of the site.  

Needless to say, our of selling trees are now over.

On the 26th of October Tash Kahn-Davis and Nigel Hayler kindly pitched up at the Jubilee woods with an apple juicer to press the flesh of the resident apples.

A good time was had by all, a crowd of families gathered, thanks to the efforts of Will Batemen, and a high quality product was produced and enjoyed by the Juicers.

Watch this space for future juicing days and other Jubilee Wood events.

P.S.  don’t forget to pick up your Apple Day quiz from the pub or from Our Shop.
