Apple Day

Apple Day is now celebrated by thousands at hundreds of events all run by local people - Common Ground initiated it with the hope it would become a calendar custom open to all to celebrate nature and culture symbolised by the apple - which began its life in the Tien Shan (the Heavenly Mountains - now China /Kazakh/Kirgyzs border) and over millennia wandered to these shores.
