Apple cake (and fun for kids) on offer at Kinneil

Residents are being asked to find out more about plans to recreate the orchard beside Kinneil House in Bo’ness.

Forth Environment Link will be setting up a stall next to Kinneil Museum on Saturday, August 29, as part of the Kinneil House open day taking place at the same time.

Pop along, hear about the plans and give your views – any time from noon to 3 p.m. There will also be apple cake on offer and fun for children.

Diane Alderdice, Project Co-ordinator for FEL’s Forth Valley Orchards’ Initiative, said: “Please come and chat to us in our gazebo beside the museum.  We will have a self-guiding ‘Orchardeering’ Trail for children, and we will be asking people to get involved in a new group to manage the proposed new orchard there.  There will be home-made apple cake and apple rock cake, made with ‘Tom Putt’ apples, kindly donated by a Bo’ness resident from a tree reputed to be pre-1860.  The Friends will also have a pop-up café in the museum.”
