|Wordsworth's House, Cockermouth|
This last week some of us had an enjoyable change of venue for our activities. We held another volunteer recruitment fair at Wordsworth House in Cockermouth. It was good to meet up with the House team.
Once again it was successful and Jean & Jean were well pleased with the number of people who signed up. Some wanted to help with estate work such as forestry and building and others were interested in working indoors in the House café, the garden or in costume.

Apple Day is coming up on September 22nd. We will celebrate apples from our garden (heritage varieties including the Keswick Coddlin and the Greenup Pippin) in the Georgian Kitchen where they make moreish recipes from the time when William was a child growing-up in Cockermouth. Elsewhere in the house there will be apple poetry and in the café you will find apple-based chutneys to go with fresh cheese scones plus cakes and pies made from apples from the garden. We have an apple pie and a spiced apple cake in the café most of the time at the moment, so there’s no need to restrict yourself to Apple Day! They’re great with clotted cream on the side…
Your apples might even be served by one of our volunteers!
|A good crop this year.|
