But that did not stop the weather doing its best impression of summer.

With temperatures hitting the twenties in East Anglia, Apple Day at Gressenhall farm today was a sunny success.

Events organiser at Gressenhall, Miriam Burroughs, said: “We’ve had fabulous weather, and everyone’s been enjoying themselves, in a great mood.

“It’s been a fantastic year for apples with all the late sunshine.”

She added that the Apple Day is always popular with punters whatever the weather - with a range of fresh produce available, including the more autumnal offerings of spiced apple juice and cider.

She said: “Its an event that our regulars won’t miss.”

The annual Apple Day is Gressenhall Farm’s biggest one-day event.
