Cider-making at Hamptonne

CHILDREN enjoyed apple juggling and plate spinning while their parents sampled elderflower cider among other flavours at Hamptonne’s annual Fais’sie d’Cidre over the weekend.

CHILDREN enjoyed apple juggling and plate spinning while their parents sampled elderflower cider among other flavours at Hamptonne’s annual Fais’sie d’Cidre over the weekend.

Around 3,000 people attended the two-day event, which has been running since 1993 and is organised by Jersey Heritage, the National Trust for Jersey and the Société Jèrsiaise.

Families were able to see tons of apples being crushed in the traditional way, using a horse to turn a large granite wheel, and later in the evening listened to live music from Les P’tits Crapauds Choir and Friends of the Tone Deaf.

Other entertainment included the St Helier Morris Men, Jèrriais poetry and talks from apple experts and Bob Tompkins, who discussed Jersey bees.
