Fancy Picking Cider Apples for Charity.........

Transition langport


If you turn up at Merrick's Farm this Sunday, 20th Nov at 10.30am in the orchard at Merricks Farm, you can help pick apples to turn it into cider to be sold at Green Fair and the Harvest Supper next year.

For those of you not sure how this all works: Merricks donates the cider apples, Transition Town members pick them up and help press the apples to turn it into cider to be sold at Green Fair and the Harvest Supper the following year. Transition Town gets a donation from the proceeds raised and the surplus monies go towards off setting the expenses of holding the Green Fair. So, if this job doesn't get done, two important local community groups miss out on funding.

The situation is urgent because, although the cider apples have been late to fall this year, the annual arrival of flocks of starlings to clear up all the fallen fruit through the orchards has not been similarly delayed and so there is a clash of interests! Hence the short notice call for volunteers!

The weather for Sunday is overcast and cool , so good picking weather.

Contact Jane or Simon Brooke (Merricks Farm) for more info, 01458 252901.
