As this year's apple harvest is collected in, now is a good time to consider entering the annual Haddenham Cider Competition.

The judging evening is already in the diary: it will take place at The Rising Sun on Saturday 11th March 2023, starting at 7.00pm.

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

The event will be following its well-established and familiar format, so everyone present on the evening 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!

So now's the time to make some cider and it's really easy, even for beginners -- for instructions, simply click here.

And don't forget, Zero Carbon Haddenham has an apple press that's available free to use by Haddenham residents -- to borrow it, click here

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 11th March 2023.
No cheating -- e.g. Adding bought cider!

That's about it for now.

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