I live in a Wolvercote, a small village just north of Oxford City Centre. This village and its surroundings, in my opinion, is at its absolute best in early autumn. From the bountiful harvests of fruit and veg on the allotments in Port Meadow, to the horse chestnut trees along the main roads displaying their last fiery glory before their leaves disappear, every corner has a photo opportunity. This weekend the village had its annual Apple Day, where anyone with 50p and a taste for amazing local fruit can rock up, grab a basket and pick their own from an amazing variety of apples that’s been established in the community orchard. Add to that the musical stylings of a funky street band Horns of Plenty, challenges such ‘the longest apple peel’, apple pressing, conker games and beautiful warm weather and you have the perfect recipe for a fun family afternoon.
