What is it?
Autumn is apple season, and to celebrate the village of Clovelly in Devon is holding its first Apple Day, with lots of apple crafts and activities.
Apple pressing by Gatcombe valley Juices, will be taking place outside the Visitor Centre. Visitors are welcome to bring a bag of apples, watch them being pressed, and taste the fresh juice. Bring extra apples and (for a small charge) have them pasteurised and bottled to take home.
There will be apple crafts and activities in the Visitor Centre from 12pm to 4pm. The round shape of the apple, with the great reds and greens, makes the apple a perfect base for creating art. So visitors will be encouraged to take part in some apple art with The Plough. Either carve, sculpt, or decorate an apple, and enter the Apple Art Competition.
There will be live music from No Rest for the Fiddlers, as well as apple bobbing, and apple stamping. For adults there will be apple cup making, which can then be used to enjoy a refreshing cider drink (available at the café bar).
Clovelly Court Gardens will have autumn produce on sale, including a pick of pumpkins, and the Merry Harriers Garden Centre will also have some of their interesting products on display.
At 4pm families can take part in a fun Harvest Hunt with Clovelly tour guide, Jana Edwards. Edwards will take visitors down the village street telling spooky stories, whilst participants look for clues to win a harvest treat. The hunt will finish at the New Inn at 5.30pm.
