Essex Wildlife Trust had their annual Apple Day today. There were apples for sale and you could taste and try before you buy! Also apple juice on sale. The apples and juice were supplied by Lathcoats Farm ( www.eapples.co.uk ) in Galleywood, Chelmsford.
The Walled Kitchen Garden was also open and fresh produce was on sale. Produce will also be on sale on Thursdays from around 10 am.
We had a visit from a group from the Havering Museum who arrived in style - in a 1960's Routemaster Bus, complete with ticket collector! They had included Bedfords Park in a tour of the Borough and visited the Deer Enclosure, the Visitors' Center and the Walled Garden. Apart from the heavy rain, which delayed their departure, they appeared to have a good time.
