The fifth apple-pressing day presented by community group the Turvey Bloomers is being held at the village hall on Saturday, October 10.

Seventy litres of bottled and softly pasteurised juice have already been prepared and the aim is to press about 100 litres more on the day.

Visitors will be able to have a turn on the heritage press and scratter and watch the water-powered press kindly on loan from Elisabeth Evershed, who will be selling her locally- produced cider as one of many participating groups and individuals.

Visitors will also find fruit juices, honey, homemade bread, cakes, crepes and pies, jams, preserves and breakfast rolls. There will be flowers for sale, plants, woolly hats and the 2016 vintage car calendar. Local musicians will be providing live entertainment.

Festivities begin at 10am and admission is free.
