Hundreds of apples were pressed into juice and cider as families enjoyed Nailsea Community Apple Day.
The event is organised by Transition Town Nailsea to make use of the surplus apples around the town.
This year the festivities were held at the Ring O’ Bells in St Marys Grove.
The Mendip Morris Men performed on the day and Nailsea Folk Club organised a number of musical acts including the Twice Dailies.
Nailsea Apple Day began around eight years ago in people’s back gardens to ensure surplus apples did not go to waste.
It has now grown into a popular community event which attracts scores of families.
Revellers tucked into apple cake, juice, cider and barbecued.
Nailsea Cider attended and took away apples to turn into cider ready for Transition Town Nailsea’s wassail next year. Money raised on the day will go to Children’s Hospice South West.
