Tring’s Own Apple Fayre 2020
A virtual seasonal celebration of our environment, food, culture and Tring…
In 2004 Tring’s last surviving orchard was saved from development. Nationally important, the country’s only surviving First World War smallholding still remains, along with its historic bungalow, its orchard and nationally scarce wildlife. Featured in The Times and on BBC’s Countryfile, it helped to establish Tring Farmers’ Market in 1999 – one of the very first in the country and has hosted an Apple Day since 2005. This has grown into Tring’s Own Apple Fayre, a powerful seasonal festival which engages all sections of the community where possible. It aims to celebrate and support our local environment, our town, its businesses and its people together in a fun way.
2020 has been a challenging year in many ways for all of us. Dominated by the global pandemic, communities and individuals have experienced sometimes life-changing events.
Perhaps it has, however, reminded us we are still very much a living part of our planet. The time we have had to re-think our lives, become more aware of the natural world and our impacts on it – and it on us, has been important. Numerous extreme weather events worldwide are certainly a wake-up call. But life goes on and so does our local community in Tring. The Farmers Market has continued and so does the Apple Fayre – albeit more virtual this year.
Having decided to avoid encouraging numerous gatherings, Tring Together hope the ‘events’ and activities they have put together provide some light relief and a reminder that we can raise our spirits and still work together to protect ourselves and the planet!
