Posts in Celebration
St George's Church, Georgeham
Spring term ends with a children's Easter service at the village church and the churchyard is worth a quiet wander at this time of year. There are some delightful architectural features, swathes of wildflowers and blossoming trees.
This evening we are drinking to the health of our apple trees and hoping that this year's harvest will be a good one! For hot mulled cider, or warm mulled apple juice for little ones, you can make a sachet of the following: cinnamon, star anise, cardamom pods, fresh ginger, dried orange peel, nutmeg. Add honey to sweeten.

The Apple Press
The press dates from 1750 and was one of the first things to be restored when we moved here 6 years ago. It stands in an open barn and needs to be cleaned and oiled before each annual apple pressing.
