St Peter and St Paul Church will play host to the apple harvest festival with a celebration of the harvest, bell-ringing and a tapestry of apples which everyone is encouraged to help create on Sunday (October 9).

There will be a family act of worship with the choir, music, readings and seasonal refreshments on offer.

Residents are asked to bring a red or green apple to place on the mosaic to celebrate the harvest festival.

The mosaic will be left in the Church all day Sunday and the apples are then used for apple pressing displays.
