The event will especially feature a range of apple-themed activities, for everyone to get involved in: picking, pressing (juicing), and making (and eating) apple based snacks. There will also be the long-anticipated return of their annual conker competition! This free event is open to all, anytime between 10am and 3.30pm. Click here for more details.

Skelton Grange is an acclaimed conservation centre run by The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) charity – just off Pontefract Road in Stourton, ten minutes walk from Hunslet – who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary. They hold events and programmes for the public and for schools year-round, and are always looking for new volunteers. Click here for more info.
