Ap­ple­fest presses right but­tons

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Vil­lagers braved the rain last week­end to make their own ap­ple juice as part of an an­nual fes­ti­val.

The event, or­gan­ised by West Malling Parish Coun­cil, drew crowds of all ages to Macey’s Meadow, off Nor­man Road for a fun-filled af­ter­noon.

As well as of­fer­ing vis­i­tors the chance to learn more about the har­vest, the fair fea­tured live mu­sic.

Mal­colm Doyle, chair­man of the Macey’s Meadow Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee, said: “For the first time our an­nual Ap­ple­fest was not blessed with fine weather but there was a good turnout in the cir­cum­stances, and the fam­i­lies who came still en­joyed help­ing to turn their ap­ples into tasty ap­ple juice.

“We also launched ‘Friends of Macey’s Meadow’ through which we aim to pro­mote the meadow and to en­cour­age more vol­un­teers to help with a wide va­ri­ety of tasks.”

Any­one want­ing fur­ther de­tails is urged to con­tact the clerk on 01732 870872 or email clerk@west­mallingpc.org.
