Jersey Heritage would like to pass on a huge thank you to some amazing apple picking volunteers from First Names Group and Statestreet. The apple picking is intrinsic to La Fais’sie D’Cidre where we celebrate Jersey’s rich cider producing heritage, the most important part of the event is the apple crushing /pressing to produce cider; a minimum of 160 bags of apples is required for the process to be successful over a two day period. With the help from our volunteers we exceeded that amount and collected over 200 sacks in a record amount of time!
By becoming a corporate supporter Jersey Heritage can tailor volunteering opportunities to suit you.
We hope that you will join us at the Fais’sie d’Cidre on 17 and 18 October as this weekend-long celebration of the apple continues to be one of the Island’s favourite family events, bringing together communities, volunteers and organisations, artisans and experts.
