An apple a day kept the boredom at bay for residents in Headingley, including Evan Reynolds.

Members of the community came out in force for the area’s popular annual celebration of the humble apple on Saturday.

Held at the Heart cafe, the day’s events included apple pressing, Morris dancing, cider, apple sampling and identification as well as a fruit tree and plant sale. There was also a Gardeners’ Question Time, live music and activities for children.

Apple Day is held around October 20 every year to celebrate apples, orchards and fruit grown in the area’s gardens and allotments.

It was started in 1990 by Common Ground as a way of demonstrating how people can change where they live.

The Heart cafe is a community-run social enterprise in Headingley.
