A popular Ipswich event has been rescheduled after organisers were forced to cancel due to poor weather.

Ipswich Apple Day, which is organised by the Friends of Holywellls Park, will now take place on November 4 between 11am and 2pm.

The event had been due to take place last Saturday but was cancelled by organisers following concerns of strong winds from Storm Brian.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said at the time; “We have been monitoring the weather forecasts and regretfully have to cancel it as we simply cannot risk people’s safety in these conditions.”

With storm winds having subsided organisers hope that visitors will still flock to the new date at the Hollywells Orchard, in the south east of the town.
