Saturday 23rd October
Rose Vale Park, Stockport
Come down to Rose Vale Park for an afternoon picnic, ‘Apple Day’ festivities, storytelling with Susie Oldfield and featuring our natty contraption ‘Pedal Pedal Squish Squish’. Hosted by The Orchard Project and The Friends of Rose Vale Park.
FREE TICKETS: rose_vale_apple_day_2021.eventbrite.co.ukThanks to Stockport Local Fund we’ve added 15 new fruiting trees to the park this year, and now it’s time to celebrate! We’ve got lots more fruity activities planned in the next 6 months so watch this space.
We’re taking bookings of four people per picnic mat but if your group is larger than four you may purchase two or more tickets. E.g. 3 adults + 3 kids = 2 Picnic Mats, so you’ll need two tickets. No need to bring your own. Our amazing storyteller, Susie Oldfield, will be ready to engage you in some fruity folk tales, splendiferous stories, murky myths and loopy legends. Choose the afternoon slot that suits you and your family best and we’ll do the entertaining.
Expect apple themed games, fun, tasting and more.
Please use public transport, cycle or walk where possible. If arriving by car use the side streets around the park.

We’ll email out a map prior to the event just so you don’t get lost!
OUR WET WEATHER PLAN
A bit of light rain wont stop us. We’ll place enough picnic mats under our 3 x 6 metre gazebo, so plenty of space for all your kids but adults may want to bring a brolly!
Do watch out for last minute changes landing in your inbox prior to the event.

WITH THANKS TO:
Stockport Local Fund and their support which has helped us kick-start this community orchard, which in time will feed local people and support local biodiversity. Best of all it also acts as an outdoor venue for events such as these.
