With more than 40 varieties of locally grown apples being showcased and homemade treats on offer the 2012 Wisbech Apple Festival was a great success.

As part of the celebrations, which were organised by WisARD, the Horsefair Shopping Centre ran a competition to guess how many apples were displayed within a crate.

More than 100 people entered the competition and the winner who guessed the closest amount was six year-old Lily Gowler from West Walton. She estimated that 222 apples were inside the crate which held 230.
