Community organisation Big Worle hosted the apple day to provide free activities for people living in the area.

The event was held at the Big Worle Hub, in Clovelly Road, where people had a go at pressing their own apple juice and apple bobbing.

One of the highlights was the apple pie competition, which had both adult and child categories.

A Big Worle spokesman said: “Big Worle Apple Day was amazing.

“It was a fantastic community event bringing everybody together at the hub for a really great family day.

“There was great face-painting and lots of lovely arts and crafts on the day.

“We managed to chomp our way through nearly 200 burgers and sausages on the barbecue, which shows how many people attended.”
