Apple Fair is my favourite celebration held in town and we had a great time this year. It wasn’t as sunny as usual but I managed to get some good snaps to share with you.
The Stalls had a great selection of apple juices from local orchards, plants, woodturning, cider making, knitting and other country crafts.
One interesting stall was the orchard locations in Cambridgeshire and the heritage apples they produce. Sadly a lot of these varieties are being lost as orchards are sold off for farm land and housing developments.
Miss L and I were fascinated by the apple peeling contest, how good are these?
There was also yurt there (sadly I didn’t get a photo) with information about Ely becoming a Transition Town which aims to help lower reliance on fossil fuels, deal the with consequences of Peak Oil and to lower the city’s Carbon Footprint. It was very informative and I’m very proud of Ely becoming such a city. Find out more about it here
