Village day is all about the apple
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.
