It takes place on Sunday 2nd October and there's a special rate for locals. See poster for details. You can see a report of last year's event here. Promises to be a great meal!

Harvest festivals and apple pressing

It's the time of year again to celebrate the annual harvest and once again Transition Scilly has teamed up with the AONB to co-ordinate some events happening on the Islands to celebrate our local food culture.

On Sunday 25th September, right after the harvest festival in St Mary's Parish Church, will be an apple pressing session on the lawn of the garden pavilion on St Mary's, from 12.00-2.00. Please bring along any excess apples (or other fruit) that you may have, plus some empty containers and take home some freshly pressed juice! If you don't have fruit to bring you're still welcome to come along.

If there is demand we'll run another pressing session in October - please get in touch if you're interested in a session next month.
