The Big Squeeze!

The annual communal apple squeezing takes place on Saturday 29th September in The Bluebell garden.

This year there should be a big apple harvest. So, simply turn up on the day from around 10am with apples, chopping boards, a knife, demijohns, buckets, crates, etc.

Alex will provide a rustic lunch for participants.

You can take away a gallon of juice to drink or ferment and perhaps enter the Cider Competition in January where some of the cider has been almost drinkable in past years!

The Big Squeeze is supported by Easton's Horticultural Society and any funds raised go towards equipment for future squeezing events.

Any questions, speak to Joy Forster - 07718 900007.

Quiz time

The Bluebell is hosting a pub quiz on the 12th of September starting at 7.30 pm. Entry is £5 per person and maximum per team is 4. The winners will receive a meal voucher at the pub. There is a supper included (with a vegetarian choice if required) and part of the money raised will go to the charity of choice of the winning team. Please pop into the Bluebell and book or call Alex on 01780 763003. Any questions please ask me.
