HRA Apple Press Day

Saturday, 30th September, 13:00-17:00, village green

HRA logo

It’s the eighth annual Horningsea Apple Press on Saturday the 30th of September at 13:00.
Bring your own apples from the garden, some empty bottles (and just a bit of elbow grease!) and take your self-pressed apple juice home with you. As with previous years all apples will be placed in a communal pile for pressing.

On the morning of the Village Apple Pressing day we’ll trawl public apple trees in the village to start the “communal apple bucket”. If you fancy doing some scrumping, whether for the community pile or for yourself, then meet on the village green at 10:00. We’ll finish at 12:00 with the main event starting at 13:00.
Email hra.events@gmail.com or ring Chris on 07739 578 612 for details.

As last year The Crown and Punchbowl will be supplying BBQ’ed yummy sausage sandwiches for all apple pressers!

Horningsea Herald July 2017

Here’s July’s Herald.

July is generally a busy month and guess what…!

– It’s Village Day tomorrow (1st July). As last year there’ll be the Stomp Happy Ceilidh band, so bring your dancing shoes.

– Then the following weekend it’s the Horningsea Horticultural Show.

– It does not stop then though as there’s two weekends of music, art and more at the church.

If you use Facebook then there’s a group for Horningsea to publicise events:

You can follow us on Twitter too.

See you tomorrow on the village green!
