Perry good crop at the fayre

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? -

RECORD crowds of more than 2,000 en­joyed the 22nd an­nual ap­ple fayre at Perry Court, Wye, at the week­end.

Helped by an abun­dance of rain this year the Fer­mor fam­ily has har­vested a bumper crop of qual­ity fruit from their many va­ri­eties of juicy ap­ples and pears.

There were also a se­lec­tion of craft stalls, ru­ral crafts, in­clud­ing spin­ning or­gan­ised by Au­drey Dur­rent and chil­dren’s rides, pro­vid­ing a host of at­trac­tions for the many vis­i­tors.

Eleven cooks com­peted for the ap­ple pie bak­ing ti­tle.

The win­ner, who was judged by East­well Manor chefs, was reg­u­lar en­trant De­sie Mor­ris, from Ash­ford.

Heidi Fer­mor said: “It was a fan­tas­tic turnout this year in per­fect weather and we raised more than £3,000 for Ash­ford Pil­grims Hospice.”
