To celebrate Apple Day and all things Autumn, this year we invite you to join us for our first annual Autumn Fayre, a community event for all on Saturday the 22nd of October. We’ve planned a day full of fun!
Bring your apples for juicing in our traditional apple presser. Don’t worry if you don’t have an apple tree, we’ll have apples available for you! About 2.5 kilos of apples will give you a litre of apple juice.
Families can enjoy a nature based activity on Barnes Common at the 10 year anniversary Yaffles session, or create a craft with our community growing team in the polytunnel at Vine Road.
If you’re looking for a learning experience, join internationally regarded botanist, Dr Mark Spencer for a fungi walk on Barnes Common. Morning and afternoon sessions are available, book your tickets on Eventbrite.
Feeling competitive? The conker competition is for you – bring your own conkers and battle others.
Hungry? We’ve got cake… lots of cake!
Entry to the Fayre is free, but please do register on Eventbrite so we know you are coming. Fees apply to some activities, and tickets for the fungi walk can be purchased on Eventbrite.
The Feel Good Bakery will be open for hot drinks and snacks.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear.
Meet for all activities at the Vine Road Recreation Ground near the Pavilion.
