Apple Pressing (2) 2015

For years, the changing season from summer to autumn has been marked in both Tarvin churches and in Tarvin School by the ever-popular Harvest Festivals — a celebration of our gratitude for what the Earth and its' creator have provided for us. In the last few years, though, another celebration has been held: a celebration of the local apple crop and of our ability to produce apple juice (widely believed to be obtainable only from supermarkets!) from them.

This Saturday, 7th October 2017, will see the third Apple Pressing Day in Tarvin's Woodland. Held in the section of woodland behind Crossfields from 11.00am to 3.00pm, the day is intended as a fun day out for Tarvin folk and their families, without the need to travel far or to spend much money. There will be apples to press, fresh apple juice to drink, crafts for the youngsters, hot and cold drinks and, of course, Wally Dutton's beef burgers and hot dogs for lunch. Cheshire Wildlife Trust will once again be with us to talk about the work they are doing in helping to conserve and encourage nature in all its forms.

So, if you have windfall apples — or apples still on the tree that you don't wish to put into store for later use — find a bag, or a bucket, or a wheelbarrow and bring them along to the woodland on Saturday, to turn them into wonderfully refreshing apple juice. If you were to bring along a plastic bottle, you could take some home with you to enjoy on Saturday evening. What a marvellous way to spend your Saturday and to entertain the whole family — without it breaking the bank!
