The juicing weekends have proved very popular with about 500 litres of juice being pressed over the two weekends from locally grown apples
Thanks to all at Red House Estates for hosting the events and working tirelessly to help make the events such a success.
In addition to villagers, we also welcomed visitors from the neighbouring parishes of Healaugh, Long Marson, Tockwith and Whixley and travellers from as far away as Huddersfield.
A full report to follow, but here are some quotes and photos to whet your appetite.
"Two of us came along yesterday. The juice is delicious. (We) Think it's a great village project. Please let me know if you decide to do another session before the end of the year. Many thanks, Jane"
"Alex, my grandson, and I very much enjoyed the experience. Very good result and hope to repeat it next year!"
There is a quantity on locally grown, pressed and pasteurised 3L pouches of apple juice available to buy. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like some.
Great fun was had by young and the “not so young” alike at our first Family Fun Fishing day on 4th June.

This was on the 8th July. These BT Openreach Guys were laying the spine from Lane End up to the corner of Main Street. They were then going to continue all the way up Main Street. They confirmed that this was FTTP (for those that wanted it) at 100MB. No timescales for ordering, but can't be that far off now.
