Not So Pressing Business

Another village activity affected by this year’s weather has been the Cyder Club.

The conditions have severely affected many fruit trees and the apple crop has been the poorest for many years. As a result, the Club’s foraging and pressing activities took much less time than expected.

There was no need for a Friday evening pressing session and on Saturday it was all over by lunchtime. At least this meant that the excellent lunch, brilliantly hosted as usual by the Hipwells, was a very relaxed affair.

Production of juice was limited to 135 gallons, down by 75% on normal years. It is hoped that reserves will cover the Club members’s needs in the coming year.

Compost Changes

This summer’s unusual weather has affected the village’s Composting Scheme. As a result the arrangements for the last collections of the season have changed.

The collection planned for Sunday, October 28th, has been cancelled. There will be two more collections of the 4th and 18th November.

A Seedy Business

The Gardening Club held their first meeting of the new season on Tuesday and heard all about Saving Seeds from an excellent speaker — Charlotte Philcox.

Details of this year’s seed buying scheme, which entitles members to a useful discount on their purchases, were announced. Further information on the Club Page.

Mind the Bugs

Full details of this year’s Rising Stars production — “Mind the Bugs Don’t Bite” with performances on November 9th and 10th — are now on the DVC Page.
