Apple Fayre raises school funds
Topsham School children found a scrumptious was to raise money with the school’s first ever Autumn Apple Fayre.
The pupils and their families were invited to take their own apples to the event, to be turned into ‘Topsham Tipple’ using the ‘Pomona’ mobile apple press.
They were then able to take the freshly made juice home.
On the day, too, were apple themed games and activities, a draw to win a bike, and a willow weaving workshop, as well as the chance to find out more about the school’s ‘Get Your Grown-ups Growing’ gardening campaign, and help build a plastic bottle greenhouse.
Proceeds from the day will go towards sustainability projects in the school and the community.

School sustainability coordinator Justin Vernon said: “The day was a real success with a very good turn out of local familes. Pomona was kept very busy making apple juice and produced over 400 litres.”
