St Mark’s enjoys a fruitful Apple Day

On 9th October St Mark’s Church in Upper Hale, Farnham hosted its second Apple Day. Members of the community arrived with bags of apples to be juiced and enjoyed the food, drink and music on offer.

The Reverend Hannah Moore, the new curate in the parish, commented, “It was my first Apple Day and it was such a lovely community event, with people there aged 0 to 94, including three in wheelchairs; and over fifty people stayed for the Harvest service that followed on in the church.”

Lesley Shatwell, the Licenced Lay Minister continued, “The apples and pears were harvested from the community orchard and they were delicious, as were the tasty apple pancakes, accompanied by the sound of cheery musicians playing apple-related songs.”

John Ely, local resident and apple presser said “It was a pleasure to be invited to press apples into juice with so many young helpers and even better to see them enjoy drinking it!”
