- 10th Potton Apple Day – CANCELLED 27th September 2020
Unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel this year’s Potton Apple Day
The 10th Potton Apple Day will be held on Sunday 27th September 2020 in Henry Smith Playing Fields from 12 pm until 3 pm. At present, it is not known what activities will be offered that will comply with the guidelines on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, but a celebration of apples and orchards is planned in a very 2020 fashion. It will be an outdoor event with plenty of space for social distancing.
Hopefully, there will be apple juice and cider for sale on the day, along with food and music; displays of Bedfordshire apples and information about orchards, an apple identification service and fruit trees for sale. It looks like it’s going to be a good harvest, so there should be unusual varieties of apples for sale.
Inevitably, there will be less interaction due to the risk or cross-contamination, but hope that a 10th anniversary event can be offered that is different in many ways, but still a very ‘Potton’ style event. In these evolving circumstances, the intention is to announce all the details soon, so watch out for details locally and on social media. ‘Like’ Potton Apple Day Facebook page if you want to see event details, as they’re confirmed.

- Potton’s Autumn Litter Pick 17th October 2020
The Autumn litter pick will take place this year between 10 am and 2 pm on Saturday 17th October. If you would like to take part, please come down to the old telephone exchange next to the Community Centre in Brook End between 10 am and 2 pm. All litter pickers, rubbish bags, hi-vis vests and route to follow will be provided. Please bring your own gloves.
The aim of the Potton litter pick is for community to come together, clean up the local environment and have fun, which of course means staying safe at all times.
Litter-picking can be carried out alone, in pairs or small groups of up to a maximum of six, based on the current government guidance for meeting with people outside of your household.
Please note: Government guidance on the lockdown may tighten or ease when the litter pick takes place.
You may have to queue slightly longer than normal when collecting and returning equipment to allow for social distancing.
