Events & Activities

We are holding our annual Apple Day in the orchard at Fineshade on Saturday 22nd October, from 10.30am until 3.30pm. Bring along your own apples and have fun turning them into juice (bring bottles to take it away in!). Look at ways of preparing apples, and take part in our apple photography and poetry competitions. Bring along your best apple or orchard photos, and make up poem for the occasion! Or enter our competition to see if you can get the longest piece of peel from an apple!

Other activities for children include picking and weighing apples, making apple bunting, colour sheets, etc.

All FREE of charge (parking charges apply).

In November, the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain are having their annual rally on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th. The car park and site may be busier than usual. 

If you wish to organise an event yourself in Fineshade Wood, please contact us
