Food Matters:The apple at the core of great day

To celebrate Apple Day, on Sunday, October 24, Clarke Hall, in Wakefield, will be holding a day of apple fun and hand-made crafts set in the beautiful 17th-century house and garden.

There will be free demonstrations and activities from apple printing to making autumnal wreaths and jewellery.

There will also be hand-made items for sale from local artists, so a great chance to find an interesting gift, or have a go at making your own.

Apple day was first organised by Common Ground charity in 1990, and has been celebrated each year since.

Events like the one at Clarke Hall will be taking place all around the country, for what has now become a national event.
