Tavy Tars at Bere Ferrers Apple Fest

The Tavy Tars once again supported the annual Apple Fest in Bere Ferrers on the 8th October with a rousing chorus of "Come landlord fill the flowing bowl" as the large hydraulic apple press was put into operation. Nearly 2 tons of apples [the winter wassailing session obviously worked!] were processed on the day making about 570 litres of apple juice. The Tavy Tars later did a rumbustious version of "Drink up thy Zider" and a more melodic "Farmer's Toast" to compliment the Border Morris group strutting their stuff in the main road....Charities supported this year include the Devon Air Ambulance and a donation to refurbish equipment in the local children's play area.
