Homemade in Haddenham (a celebration of local foods and crafts) is back for its third year and will take place on Saturday in Haddenham Village Hall and Banks Park. This time it will combine with Vale Harvest's popular monthly food market, in Banks Park (9am-1pm), which was launched in February this year.

Kirsten Shaw, one of the Homemade in Haddenham organisers, says "There will be lots of delicious food and drink available, demonstrations of how to make some of the crafts and produce, and plenty of good things to buy. We will once again be apple pressing so bring along your surplus apples and some containers to take away your juice."

Haddenham in Transition's David Lyons adds "The Homemade in Haddenham Festival will host the launch of the Haddenham Cider Competition. With many Haddenham people collecting and pressing apples for homemade cider a prize is to be awarded for the best cider. The prize is a 3-handled Wassail cup inscribed 'Haddenham Cider Competition Winner' made by Somerset potter Paul Jessop, together with a certificate. The Wassail cup, provided by the Haddenham Beer Festival Trust will be awarded each year to the best cider at the Lo-Carbon party held (this time) on Saturday 11th January 2014

The aim of the competition is to celebrate and promote local apples and cider making and inspire people to create great cider."

Rules of the competition can be obtained at Saturday's event on request or downloaded from here
