We celebrated our 25th Harvestime event in and around Much Marcle and, in recognition of this milestone, entry to all eight main venues was free this autumn.
We also introduced some new activities and a new venue for 2013 but the old favourites were still here as well. All details are on the Harvestime page. We’ll also add some pictures shortly.
We now look forward to Spring 2014 when our annual Blossomtime celebration, and the Cider and Perry Trials, will take place over the May Day bank holiday weekend. We have ordered warm, fine weather but, as we found out at Harvestime, this cannot be guaranteed!
For an afternoon, a day or a full weekend the Big Apple Harvestime and Blossomtime Events are special opportunities to enjoy the countryside in the Herefordshire parishes on the Marcle Ridge – Aylton, Little Marcle, Much Marcle, Munsley, Pixley, Putley and Woolhope. The local orchards are famous for their cider fruit and their excellent eating apples.
We have also made significant changes to the website for 2013, in particular we are improving how it works on phones and tablets. This is an on-going project so some links will take you back to the old site – looking at the archives for example. When (if?) we get time we’ll move all the old pages over to the new site.
