17 Oct 17/10/08 – Another successful Apple Day for Appleford School
Appleford, the school for children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties, had another successful Apple Day today (17th October 2008).
Traditionally held on the Friday before Autumn half term, the event started from humble origins. Two or three fundraising activities at the original event has grown to a large scale autumn fair which is used to raise funds for Appleford School, near Shrewton.
Named “Apple Day” after the school, the tradition has been going for over 15 years. The first Apple Day arose when Founders Day was moved to the autumn term. Apple bobbing was one of the fun activities on offer.
The event is now so successful that former pupils look forward to coming back.
