How Many Gallons?

Members of the Blackhand Cyder Society were presented with a fresh challenge at last Saturday's Pressing event.

They were invited to estimate, or guess?, the total number of gallons pressed over the 20 years since the Club was formed.
Answers ranged from 1,722 to 20,000, with the winning entry, from Adam Lascelles, at 6,500, quite close to the correct total of 6,823 gallons.
He was rewarded with a bottle of vintage craft cider, what else!

Gardening is Go

Well, of course, gardening in Denton is always on the go. But the great news is that, after a long break, caused by you-know-what, the Gardening Club is up and running again.

The first meeting of the new Winter season is due on Tuesday 19th October. Full details of the Club's programme can be seen Here.

Perhaps best news of all - no subscriptions will be charged to existing members this year. As usual, new members will also be most welcome.

Great Coffee and a Great Result

Coffee was served at the Village Hall on Saturday morning and a significant sum of money was raised.

For some years a special Coffee Morning has been held in Denton, organised by the Hanner family, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. This is part of what is claimed to be the "Biggest Coffee Morning in the World" to support a great Cancer Charity.

Needless to say Denton residents, and their friends, attended in large numbers, bought tickets in the raffle etc., and had a good time. It was wonderful to see the Hall so busy once again.

However, the real objective of the event, to raise funds for such an important charity, was certainly realised. A total of over £1,000 was raised.
