Big Apple in 2021
A Happy New Year to you all!
As we are sure you are aware, we were unable to run any of our normal events in 2020.
We’re now looking at 2021 and it’s fairly obvious that we won’t be able to run a normal Blossomtime on 2nd/3rd May. We may be able to do something low key but at the moment there is not enough information about how the situation will be by May to do any significant planning.
We have reluctantly decided that the Cider and Perry Trials will not be able to take place that weekend either.
We are continually monitoring the situation and with update this website with any developments.
As compensation, we prepared a number of videos that show some of the work and activities normally happening at Harvestime.

Now we are in 2021 we are putting our thinking caps on and looking at ways in which we can run at least some of the regular events. Despite the millions of vaccinations and falling case numbers, there are still many unknowns and we have no clear indication as to when groups can assemble again. Provisionally the dates for Blossomtime are 2nd and 3rd of May and for Harvestime the 9th and 10th of October but we have no firm plans yet as the situation changes quickly. We will try and do something for both events so check back from time to time as we may be arranging things a short notice!
