Walthamstow’s apples

We have several apple trees in Walthamstow which are not privately owned, including those in the garden of Vestry House Museum. Their annual rhythm is the focus of several events in the E17 calendar:

January         Wassailing to wish the trees good fertility for the coming year

August            Scrumping & Juicing – the apples on public trees are picked by members of the Walthamstow Family Bike Club and also sometimes OrganicLea. These may be juiced at the Hornbeam Cafe on Hoe Street, or on Apple Day.

October          Apple Day, celebrating apples of all varieties
