This was such a great success last year that the Tarvin Community Woodland Trustees have decided to try to make it an annual event in Tarvin's calendar — on the first Saturday in October. This year, the apple pressing will be on Saturday 1st October and will run from 11.00am through to 3.00pm, which we hope will be a better time for busy families. It will be held, of course, in the woodland behind Crossfields, in the area where our apple trees are growing and where the picnic bench is sited.

The object of the exercise, of course, is to produce apple juice and, with three presses running, everyone should be able to turn at least some of their own apples into delicious juice. Bring along a bagful (or a bucketful) of your surplus apples — windfalls work well (and other people's windfalls are super, if you can persuade the other folk to let your family collect them!) — and, if you also bring along a PLASTIC bottle, you may be able to go home with juice for the following day. Beware storing it, though — it will ferment, turning it into the start of alcoholic cider and the gas released will cause the bottle to split and leave you with a terrible mess!

Tarvin Wildlife Watch and Caroline Gregson (our village willow artist) will both be there, with lots of 'crafty' things for youngsters to try. Cheshire Wildlife Trust will also mount one of their exhibitions and answer any of your questions about local wildlife and its encouragement.

Our aim is to produce a great family day out in Tarvin woodland at minimum cost for parents. Admission, apple pressing and all of the craft work will be free of charge. Since the event will run over lunchtime, there will also be Wally Dutton's hot dogs and beef burgers, together with both hot and cold drinks, and the prices for these will be modest- we will just try to cover our costs.

So, come along and enjoy a really good day out with your family and your friends without leaving Tarvin. What could be better than that?
