A fruitful selection of apple-themed activities took place at the pub in the village’s High Street on Sunday.

People could bring their own apples to make into juice and buy food which was made in the village – including jam, honey, scones and chutneys.

Families took part in arts and crafts activities alongside watching theatre shows.

Live music was headlined by rock, rhythm and blues group Ghost Weed, and the Bristol band performed outside of the pub throughout the day.

The band played a selection of jazz and classic songs, alongside folk and country music to visitors.

Woodcarver Ian Manley also had a collection of handmade bird houses on display, which visitors were able to buy at the event.
