Residents in Bloxham came together on Saturday to enjoy the village’s annual Apple Day, which raises funds for music festival Bloxfest.
The event was held at Pig Pen Pottery in Old Bridge Road and raised about £700. Visitors were able to sample a selection of different ciders and apple juices, as well as try food made in a cob oven and listen to live music.
Local produce was on sale including chutneys, preserves and cider vinegar made from local apples.
Mo Mant, organiser, said: “It was a really successful event as the village is growing in numbers and it was a great way for new people to get to know others that live here.
“We are not judging this event in terms of money, it is nice to have an event that supports the community.” Apple Day is one of many fundraisers organised by villagers in aid of Bloxfest, which takes place every May.
Mrs Mant said: “It was a bit of a slow start in the morning, I think it was partly due to the weather. Then the sun came out and the temperature went up, we were so lucky, and it was steady right until the end. There are a lot of things that go on in Bloxham and this is another that helps Bloxfest and promotes the village.”
