Scores of people took part in activities, including apple pressing and crafts with Avon Wildlife, plus danced to live music at the village hall at the weekend.

Villagers could also bring their clothes to the event's big swap initiative, as well as learn how to weave and crochet.

Men At Ease took on 1960s and 70s song covers at the gathering, as well as Brigstowe Village Band, which entertained revellers with folk singing on the day.

A spokesman for Long Ashton Apple Day said: "Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this year's apple day at the village hall.

"We really hope you all had a lovely time in the sun, with a glass of freshly-squeezed apple juice and being entertained by the variety of music and stall-holders.

"See you next year on October 4, 2020 - please keep the date free."
