Brock's Hill Apple Day, 2010

The Apple Day at Brock's Hill, Oadby, will take place on Sunday 10 Oct 10, organised as usual by Helen Gregory.

Last year there were hundreds of visitors of all ages. Details should follow soon, but we expect apple pressing, cider-makers and samples; Leicestershire Heritage Apples Project will be there, and there will be Leicestershire apples for people to sample.

This will be the sixth such event. We hope for decent weather and a good turnout.
