An Apple A Day…...

 

An apple bobbing competition and children’s cookery kitchen will be among the highlights at Bury St Edmunds Market on Saturday 18th October. The market will be celebrating National Apple Day with activities for all ages.

 

Now in its 24th year, National Apple Day is held around the country to highlight the variety of apples grown in the UK.

 

At the market, children will be cooking apple dishes, there will be arts and crafts activities involving the fruit, apple bobbing and apple peeling competitions, as well as a host of tasty varieties of locally grown apples to try.

 

Mayor of St Edmundsbury Cllr Robert Everitt said: “The day promises to be lots of fun with lots of tempting apple activities to enjoy including bobbing in the Bury market.What better way to celebrate the rich variety of apples which are growing in the UK – while there will be plenty of fresh fruit and vegetable available to buy as well.”

 

Billy Grimwood, vice chairman of the Bury St Edmunds branch of National Market Traders Federation, runs a fruit and vegetable stall on the market, "The mayor has always supported the market, we always see him in town and it is great to see him joining in and having a go at apple bobbing ahead of this fantastic event."

 

The activities all take place between 10am and 3pm in the middle food aisle.
