Free Friday Apples

Last Friday, children at Brightwell cum Sotwell Primary School had fun choosing apples and plums to eat on the way home or cram into their pockets for later.

Just an hour before the end of school, a box of Laxton's Fortune apples and a box of Victoria plums were picked in an orchard in the village by members of Brightwell Village Orchard Group to give to the children.

In 2010 Paul Chilton donated 5 apple trees to start a school orchard. Each class is now known by one of these varieties; Discovery, Pippin, Bramley, Worcester and Russet.
