Apple Juicing – August to October: We will be holding public juicing sessions on Sundays from 2.00 to 4.00 pm at Blewbury Manor stable on: 29 August, 12 and 26 September, 10 and 24 October. Bring washed apples (bad bits removed, but no need to remove cores) and your own clean bottles or containers We can pasteurise the juice so it keeps for up to a year., but if you want to pasteurise (which requires glass screw-top wine or drink bottles), note that this is slow, so please arrive well before 3.00 pm. Unpasteurised juice can also be frozen in plastic bottles. If you have too many apples for our public sessions you can HIRE our equipment for £15/day in Blewbury or Upton, £20/day elsewhere. For bookings and/or more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new group – Blewbury Community Chalk Streams (BCCS): BCCS aims to conserve and enhance Blewbury’s ancient chalk streams. It is a volunteer group of scientists and lay people who, through community events and working with willing riparian owners, are aiming to enhance life in our streams and the Cleve. This activity will build further on the work of Mike Edmunds, Sustainable Blewbury and Paul Whitehead with the vision of seeing flourishing life in our streams, and even increasing the brown trout population!

A tree to fit in your garden: If we all planted one small tree (or shrub) in every Blewbury garden that would mean 800 more trees, absorbing carbon dioxide and attracting birds and insects. Working with the Hagbournes and Upton Group for Sustainability (HUGS), we will collect your orders and deliver them in November. If you have a space in your garden, or even a large pot, look at the list of trees and shrubs at: hugsustainability.org/trees-1. The trees will be bare-root, small and last year cost about £1 each.
