Autumn (or was it summer?) Fayre

We could not have wished for lovelier weather for this year’s Autumn Fayre! The unseasonal warmth brought out over 300 visitors (as well as lots of ladybirds) who enjoyed the variety of activities on offer and relaxed atmosphere. We were particularly pleased to have brilliant musicians Paul Young , Helen Bell and Wordy Band playing great music which even got some people dancing amongst the stalls.

Huge thanks go to all who supported the event in any way but especially to:

And it wasn’t just people who enjoyed the event. Thanks to Joe of Skosh and Food Circle York fame, we were able to pass on the pulp from the Autumn Fayre apple juicing to Grassfruits farm. Their pigs tucked in with audible joy – as witnessed by this video! We do our best to work towards Zero Waste, a principle also adopted by One Planet York, so reuse is even better than recycling or composting.

Below are just a few pictures, mostly taken by the brilliant Lewis Outing, to illustrate some of the highlights of the day. If you missed it, do join us next time.
