[NCOG] Apple pressing and cider making November 6th

This year's members-only juicing event will be at Mark's new cider barn in Mosser.
Non-members - please join first (go to - don't forget the joining fee of £5 as well as the subscription).
Members - please book (free) at ... th-6-11-16 - if you haven't already done so, please renew beforehand or bring the cash for your annual subscription with you.
Turn up any time from 10am onwards. All activities will take place under cover, so weather and darkness is not a problem (within reason!).
The purpose of the event is twofold:
(1) Members can bring along their own apples (or those they have scrumped) to juice and then take the juice away with them in suitable containers.
(2) Members who wish to be part of the cider-making subgroup can juice the apples and put them to ferment into cider. Novice cider-makers will receive help and guidance in doing this. The cider will be fermented at the Mosser Cider Barn - there will be subsequent events to rack and package it.
If you are not a member of the cider-making subgroup and would like to join, please read the details at download/NCOG_Cider_Club_Information_2016.pdf. For new cider group members the extra subscription will be £5. The cider is then £5 per 10L, to cover materials etc.
Please bring clean apples!
