Wymondham infants take part in apple day in Hethersett

Youngsters from two nurseries were invited to a Hethersett school to take part in a special harvest celebrations.

Boys and girls from Bouncing Beans Nursery and The Mulberry Bush, both in Wymondham, explored the orchard at Hethersett Old Hall School, picked apples and helped make juice with a press.

Sarahjane Haistead, owner of Bouncing Beans, said: 'Our children thoroughly enjoyed their outing and the chance to make their own juice.

'They particularly enjoyed exploring the orchard and playing in the school woods afterwards.'

The school has been holding an apple morning for its own pupils for the past couple of years, but this is the first time it has invited visitors.

Headteacher Stephen Crump said: 'As a registered charity we are keen to 'give back' to the local community. In fact we were recently a finalist at the Archant Good Schools Show for the 'Outstanding Contribution to the Community' award.

'We are so fortunate to have such beautiful grounds, including the orchard, playing fields and the woods. If any local nursery would like to come and pay us a visit, please contact the school.'
