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 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 for more information.

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 to find out more.


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