The Friends of Gillespie Park and Islington Council’s Ecology Centre staff are organising an ‘Apple Day’ on 19th October between 12noon and 4pm to celebrate British apples. The event will take place in and
around the Ecology Centre with lots of apple related activities, stalls, music, a raffle with lovely prizes and tours of the park. There will be an apple juicer, apple tasting and a display of heritage apples from Brogdale (home of the national fruit collection). Bring your home-grown apples for juicing or just to show everybody how lovely they are. Don’t forget a container to take your juice home in.

Children will be well catered for with apple dipping, the longest peel and all the usual fun. Food will be available throughout the day from the Sunday Cafe in the eco centre.

Apple Day will end with a grand auction of any heritage apples left over from the event.

The full address is: Islington Ecology Centre, Gillespie Park Local Nature Reserve, 191 Drayton Park London N5 1PH
