BRAMLEY apple week is being celebrated at Middlesbrough care home The Gables.
Resident and keen gardener Harry Hutchinson, 88, planted a bramley apple tree in the home’s garden to mark the occasion.
The national event, running from 8th to 14th February, has seen cooks, restaurants, care homes and schools around the country celebrating the classic apple variety.
Bramley enthusiasts are sharing their favourite recipes on social media, using the hashtags #BramleyAppleWeek and #LoveBramley.
Chris Churchill, home manager at The Gables, on Highfield Road, said: “Harry is such an enthusiastic gardener we wanted to help him celebrate national Bramley Apple Week by planting a tree in our recently renovated garden.
“We hope the tree will bear fruit before long and maybe next year we will be making apple pies and crumble.”
