Overwhelmed with apples and pears? Don’t know what to do with them all? Then bring them for pressing at the Big Family Apple Day on Saturday 1st October from 12pm-4pm at The Rec, in support of Farmborough Community Shop.
There will be two large apple presses to turn all your apples and pears into tasty juice, and you will be able learn how to turn your juice into cider too. Remember to bring a bucket or suitable container(s) for your juice! A charge of £1 per 5 litres of pressed juice will be made to cover running costs.
No apples and pears? No worries! Come with friends and family to celebrate the abundance of local fruit. Watch the apple pressing and enjoy something from our community BBQ, with cider, ice cream, and local apple juice. BBQ food: £3 adults, £2 kids. Meal deals (incl drink): £5 adults, £3 kids, £15 family. Vegetarian option available.
Arrangements are also being made for a local apple expert to attend, so come with any questions about how to grow this wonderful fruit in your own back garden, or get the best from the trees you already have.
Plus, bring your tennis rackets and footballs for family fun on the Rec, try your luck in the raffle, meet your neighbours, and find out more about your community shop (planned to open in 2017).
