An Apple Day is being held at the Huntingdonshire Community Plant and Tree Nursery in Godmanchester on Saturday 14 October, 11am–3pm. There will be activities for all the family, including the chance to have a go with the apple press to make juice from the nursery’s apple trees, a Fruity Trail for families to follow, face painting, craft stalls, and a barbeque as well as a cafe serving delicious homemade cakes and drinks. There will also be the chance to stock up on nursery-grown plants and produce.

Cllr Jim White, whose executive responsibilities include Countryside Services, said: "As well as giving people the opportunity to see what our Community Plant and Tree Nursery has to offer, there will be fun activities for all the family including trying and buying some of the 19 heritage varieties of Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire apples. You could pick up some ideas to use in your own garden and buy some plants too."

Huntingdonshire District Council Ranger, Brian Gardner, said: "Adults and children always enjoy having a go with the apple press to make juice. We will be using our apples which have been grown in the orchard at the Nursery, but if anyone wants to bring their own fruit to make into juice then they are welcome (please bring a suitable container). It is great fun and you get pints of fresh juice to take home which can be frozen."

The Community Plant and Tree Nursery is situated behind 25 Park Lane, Godmanchester. Limited parking is available on site. Further pay and display parking is available a short walk away at Bridge Place, Huntingdon.
