25th Anniversary Celebration! Sunday, 30th September 2018, Blewbury School, 12 noon – 4 pm
Our 25th year – the BVS Environment Group began in August 1993. We’ll be celebrating with an exhibition of 25 of our successes in 25 years. It will be more than an exhibition the Blewbury Wagon will be there, there will be a barbecue and bar run by the school, demonstrations of apple juicing, pond dipping, and other activities for children including an exhibition of their school sustainability projects. For more information please see the separate flyer in this Bulletin.
Apple juicing Sundays at Blewbury Manor stable
Remaining dates: • 7 October 2–4 pm • 21 October 2–4 pm • 4 November 11am–1 pm (if needed)
Please bring washed apples (cores are ok but remove bad bits) and clean glass (screw-top) wine or drink bottles.
Cost: £1 per pressing (large basket or bucket of apples), pasteurising 30p per bottle. If you wish to pasteurise your juice (so it will last for up to a year) please arrive early in the session as it takes quite a while.
Hire: Too many apples for our sessions? Hire our equipment for 24 hours for just £10 in Blewbury and Upton, £15 elsewhere. For bookings or more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
