DESPITE Storm Brian bringing a wintry flavour to the day, Pembroke 21C's ever-popular Apple Day celebration was another rip-roaring success.

The event which was held at the Foundry House Community Centre in Pembroke is the focus for everyone to come together to celebrate the humble apple.

Community Interest Company Project Manager Adam Freeman said: "It's amazing to see the devotion that the people of Pembrokeshire have towards this sometimes overlooked food, another fantastic turnout.

"The 2017 season has been an early one for apple harvesting, and storms Ophelia and Brian have bought a lot of the later varieties off the trees early, yet there was a queue for the fresh apple juice that we provide with the visitors' apples and our pressing equipment.

"There were lots of things to taste and try and talks on the importance of pollinators - especially the honey bee; welsh apple varieties, ideal for our climate - and a tasting of last year’s cider.

"Funds raised on the day go towards maintaining our community orchard at Greenhill Farm. So I'd just like to say a huge thank you to the Welsh Perry and Cider Society, Tanyard Youth Project, St Oswalds Community Garden, the bread club and staff and volunteers at Pembroke 21C for making it such a special day once again.”
