In 2017, we did not partake in this event.
2015 was the fourth year of our 'Fruit Forage walk' which we run in conjunction with the Farnborough Society. Our last walk was well attended, the weather was fine the paths were dry, and the event continued to prove popular although this year, as the season was early, we did not find much in the way of apples. We again made use of the 'Parkside Cafe in the Park' for refreshments. This cafe, is run by the local charity Parkside ,which is an organisation setup to provide support for individuals with learning difficulties. By helping in the cafe these individuals, supported by volunteers, gain valuable work experience as well as taking part in a useful service to the community.
On account of the previous popularity of this event, and providing we get good response in 2015, we shall most definitely run the walk again next September (in 2016). Our date this year is September 6th a little earlier than last year when we missed the best of the apple season. I suppose we need a crystal ball, or a visit to the Oracle, to predict accurately how the Summer progresses so hopefully my intuition has got it right this year!
