Mmmmmmmmm. Trip back to Hereford. Interesting idea.

That would be a nice trip.

I'm really up for a trip. I'd go anywhere. With anyone (nearly).

I'm really up for a trip too (but maybe we should start an acid thread so as not to get it mixed with cider {acid and cider - it must be Glastonbury!}).

Seriously, though. I think I've managed to convince work colleague to go there this weekend so I'll get the lowdown from him and maybe we should plan going one weekend if anyone wants to.

Anyone got round to organising anything yet? I can't remember who said they'd phone Roots & Shoots. And Ivan, any progress with the Ciderdelica Evening? Talking about cider is great fun but its time for some action!

Ah, just spent a happy couple of hours strimming (and making encouraging noises at my fruit trees) well, Ivanhoe said something about Ciderman knowing about a scratter and press that's available. I've compared notes with the HMZ crew regarding quantities, as the answer I got from the Cider Museum didn't tally with the further research I did. It would seem that they were as bamboozled as me when it came to this problem, as everyone you ask gives a different answer. I think we should go for an average of all the answers I've been given. They also came up with this link: <
I'm off out in a bit, but when I come back, I'll get on the phone to some farms and see if I can track down some cider apples (oddly enough, I had a dream about them last night)

Ivanhoe said he would do R&S. (Linda or David.) I wandered in to Vauxhall City Farm and spoke to the live stock manager. He liked the idea and said they might have more than usual scope for storage as they had just had to move their offices out of a building that was now only suitable for storage. However he was not the right person, but they do have a person who does projects. He also liekd the idea of an apple picking trip.

I encouraged him to look at the site and post directly, but this does not appear to have happened. And I have lost the bit of paper with names and contact details.

I take it you're not in the Guildhall Library then Tharg?

I propose (do disagree with me if you would like to - I am talking about content and not apostrophe usage here please) that we phone R&S to see if they have any equipment they are willing to lend, and to establish if there are any other ways we can co-operate. Then we do the cider evening (which Ivanhoe has started on) and collect contributions to raise money for any remaining items needed, including apples which Tharg is researching. We need to confirm with Emma from Surrey Docks Farm that its OK with the rest of the people at the farm for us to do our pressing day(s) there - I'll do that bit - and assuming that it is OK, it seems the obvious place to go, with Vauxhall as a fall-back possibly. We have kind of already promised our equipment that we buy to SD farm and I dont think we should go back on that now.

Don't bother with R&S. I'm on their case.
