APPLE tree owners have been asked to donate their excess apples to a primary school in the build up to its seasonal Apple Day.

Children, parents and local villagers have been busy harvesting and are looking forward to tasting the fruits of their labour when it's turned into apple juice before their eyes on October 9.

Easton Royal Academy pupils will being pressing the apples on site under the watchful eye of Richard Paget from local business My Apple Juice.

Mr Paget, who is running the event at the Pewsey school, will then pasteurise and bottle the fruit before it is sold at the school later in the year.

Last year there was so much demand for the finished product that they now need more people to donate apples to the tasty cause.

Organiser Tamzin Henderson said "Not only is this a way we can increase funds for our wonderful little school but it also acts as a fantastic way to link the children to the beautiful countryside they live in.

"The day teaches them about the importance of reducing food miles and wastage. It also means they can take an active part in producing a delicious healthy drink."

The organising committee are asking for donations of apples to be dropped off at Easton Royal Academy from Friday October 6th.

The school office will be able to provide pre-order forms for the juice which will be on sale for £2.50 a bottle.
