Reaseheath Apple Festival

Reporter Jonathan White, Wistaston

The annual Reaseheath Apple Festival was held on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2015, at Reaseheath College - http://www.reaseheath.ac.uk - in Nantwich.

This free event took place in the College's 'Crop Shop' and featured dozens of different varieties of apple. The apples on display were sourced from Reaseheath College and an orchard located between Nantwich and Whitchurch.

There was the opportunity to taste and buy several varieties of apple. Visitors could also buy or bring their own apples and use an apple pressing machine to collect the juice.

Retired Reaseheath lecturers Derek Jones and Harry Delaney were on hand to identify different apple varieties and offer fruit growing advice.

There were also a variety of plants for sale. Numerous information leaflets and display boards advertised the wide variety of courses available at Reaseheath College.

The Canal & River Trust - https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/ - had a stand and invited new members to join.

Reaseheath’s fruit garden was also open to allow visitors to view fruit trees on a variety of root stocks grown under different systems.

Refreshments were available in the 'Bootzone' restaurant/cafe.
