Borrow our kit!

SCOG has an apple press and other essential cider making equipment; we are happy to loan this out to groups for events. Click here

Join us!
If you could offer a few hours a month you could be just the person we are looking for. We need help at our planning meetings at the Crown Hotel (third Wednesday of each month) and at events like our Apple Day and workshops, or in our community orchard in Christchurch Close. You'll certainly learn more about our fantastic local apple heritage, help to preserve and promote it, and work with an enthusiastic and friendly volunteer team. So please email SCOGchair@gmail.com for more information.
Meetings

There is a meeting at 7.30pm every third Wednesday of the month at The Crown Hotel. All welcome.

Wassail song

Wassail song

Old apple tree, we wassail thee
Here’s hope that you wilt bear
For the Gods doth know where we shall be
Come apples another year

For to bloom well and to bear well
So merry let us be
Let every man take off his hat
And shout out to the old apple tree

For to bloom well and to bear well
So merry let us be
Let every man take off his hat
And shout out to the old apple tree

All Say:

Old apple tree, we wassail thee
And hope that you will bear
Hatfuls, capfuls, three bushel bagfulls
And a little heap under the stairs

Three cheers for the old apple tree:
Hip, hip, hooray
Hip, hip, hooray
Hip, hip, hooray
