This year we invite you to use some of your own apples in a recipe that you can put on our display table in the big tent.
If possible please include a recipe card as we are going to try to make a booklet that we can sell for charity next year.
After the music, you can either collect your exhibit or you can allow it to be sold with all proceeds going to charity.
This year we are supporting treatment for a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer called Tessa Thorne, who is well known as a dressage coach and the person behind our neighbour, Abbie Newbury and her successful year riding for Team GB. If you would like to read Tessa's story, please visit her JustGiving page.
