Wheal Martyn Supports Cornish Orchards' Community Apple Project
Following a very wet and windy summer destroying many apple crops across the Country Wheal Martyn Trust has teamed up with cider, juice and preserves producer Cornish Orchards, to become a part of their Community Apple Project
Wheal Martyn will have a collection point on site and will be encouraging locals to donate apples which will then be used to create Cornish Orchards' 2012 Heritage Cider which recently won two gold stars in the Great Taste Awards, nicknamed 'Community Cider'.
Colin Vallance. Head of Heritage and Hospitality at Wheal Martyn said, 'At Wheal Martyn we are passionate about supporting local business and Cornish Suppliers so are very please to be working with Cornish Orchards to assist with their Community Apple Project and would like to encourage anyone in the locality who has apples to spare to come along and drop them off at Wheal Martyn so that we can pass them on to Cornish Orchards.'
The money raised from these donations will go towards the conservation of the natural environment at Wheal Martyn. The 26 acres of Country Park around the museum is a haven to wildlife and the nature trail is a good example of how nature is colonising the historic landscape.
Those who donate apples will be entered into a competition to win a cream tea for 2 and a family admission to Wheal Martyn.
