Care home residents at Cornwallis Court, in Hospital Road, Bury St Edmunds, have helped to celebrate Apple Day with Aspall Suffolk.
Each year, October 21, marks Apple Day, a national celebration of apples and orchards, and residents at the home, run by the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institute, receive a special visit from local cider company Aspall.
Residents enjoyed tasting a range of apple juices and ciders, provided by Aspall staff members and a presentation about the history of Aspall sparked conversations about different tastes of cider and juices among residents.
Activities co-ordinator at Cornwallis Court, Alex Winter, said: “The connection with Aspall is now in its third year and we are very thankful to the company for joining our residents in their celebrations of Apple Day.
“Events like these help residents to socialise and connect with the local community and everyone had an informative and enjoyable day learning about cider, juice and vinegar making.”
The care home cares for older Freemasons and their families as well as some people in the community and the RMBI provides a home for over 1,000 people across England and Wales – while supporting many more.
