Cider Competition 02

The date for next year's Cider Competition has been set:
7th March, at 7:00pm in the wonderful Rising Sun pub.

A trophy and prize will go to the winner but it's the occasion that makes this such a special event.

We will be following last year's format so everyone can have a taste and vote for which drink they like the best, or to put it another way, whichever one they dislike the least.

The good news is there is still time to make cider and it's really easy — for instructions, simply click here.

And don't forget, there's an apple press available free to use by Haddenham residents — get in touch with Greg to borrow it. Email: at smith.poole@btinternet.com or Telephone: 07415 610644

Should you want to enter the competition, there are just a few rules:

The apples must have been picked in Haddenham.
You must supply 1litre of your cider to the pub by 6:00pm on Saturday 7th March 2020.
No cheating — e.g. Adding bought cider!

That's about it for now.

Call Tim Chowns on 07958 686467 if you have any questions.
