Market with cider
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

October 30, 2007: Exbourne Village Hall was buzzing on Saturday October 20th with shoppers at the community market snapping up delicious local produce and diners enjoying a hearty and locally sourced big breakfast. Local producers ranged from meat by Snout and Trotter to pottery by Monkokehampton Pottery, via vegetables from Moon Farm and fruit preserves and purees by Yearnswell. The local apple harvest was celebrated with apple games and an apple pudding competition and many local producers, including Westlake Apple Juice, also kindly donated raffle prizes. The day was rounded off with a celebratory harvest supper, led by Rev'd Phillip Wagstaff and we toasted the success of ‘our rugby boys in France' with a hearty tot of Winkleigh Cider. Funds were raised for the Exbourne and Jacobstowe Community Shop with money raised by the Harvest Supper, split three ways between the Chapel, St. Mary's Church and the shop project. All in all, a fantastic day! The organisers would like to thank the many sponsors, local producers and volunteers who contributed to making the event such a great success. Many thanks to you all.
