It was another bright
sunny day for the 3rd annual Avonwick Apple Pie Fair on
Sunday 18 September.
Nearly 350 adults and
children turned out to celebrate all things apple. Apple pies sold
like hotcakes, apples were pressed into delicious juice and everyone
enjoyed a cup of tea and a slice of apple pie and cream.
races were popular with both adults and children. Jack Goshawk
successfully defended his title in the apple deportment race

line). His younger brother Josh won the children’s title in the
Entries in the apple pie baking contest were down on last

The guess the weight
of the apple pie (baked by the Turtley Corn Mill) was won by Penny
Grevatt with 14lbs 8oz. Lots of great raffle prizes were won, many
of which provided by local businesses. For those who wished they had
asked, the barbecue was supplied with its burgers and sausages by Gribbles

would like to thank everyone who came and entered into the fun of a
late summer afternoon whilst raising funds for the Avonwick and North
Huish Community Hall, which it is hoped will be built on the current
site of the Apple Pie Fair.
A big thank you is extended to Marchand Petit, the main sponsor for the event this year as well as the Turtley Corn Mill and the Cott Inn for generously baking apple pies. Thanks also to Avonwick Village Shop, the Avon Inn and to Tesco, Lee Mill who provided the apples for many of the apple pies.
