Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jack Abell jack.abell@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

OR­GAN­IS­ERS of Iver’s Ap­ple Day are hop­ing thou­sands of peo­ple will at­tend the an­nual event.

It is a cel­e­bra­tion of the role that the ap­ple plays in the vil­lage’s his­tory, and is be­ing held this Satur­day at Home Cot­tage Farm, in Ban­gors Road South.

It is or­gan­ised by a com­mit­tee ev­ery year for the com­mu­nity to en­joy, and is go­ing ahead de­spite the sec­ond fail­ure of the UK’s ap­ple crop in the past three years.

Last year, more than 3,000 peo­ple found plenty to en­joy at Ap­ple Day. There will be nu­mer­ous stalls again this year for char­i­ties, lo­cal pro­duc­ers and traders, sell­ing a va­ri­ety of goods, from tof­fee ap­ples and other pro­duce to and crafts.

There will be plenty for chil­dren to en­joy, in­clud­ing face paint­ing, a Punch and Judy show, fer­ret rac­ing and craft ac­tiv­i­ties. There will also be refreshment tents and a bar­be­cue.

Peo­ple are be­ing en­cour­aged to show their support and at­tend the event – what­ever the weather.

George Jef­fers of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, said: “We re­ally hope peo­ple can join us and be a part of this lo­cal com­mu­nity event.”

En­try is £1 per adult but free for chil­dren. Park­ing costs £3 for the day. The fun starts at 11am and con­tin­ues un­til 4pm.

Pro­ceeds from the event will be shared be­tween St Mar­garet’s Church, in Iver Heath, and other lo­cal char­i­ties.
