Freshly-squeezed apple juice was used to toast the success of an eco cafe organised by Greener Melrose, Fair Trade Melrose and the Eco Congregations in the town’s Corn Exchange.
On display was the Seeds of Hope exhibition, complete with pledge tree. On stage was live apple pressing, including an experiment to see if the volume and taste of apple juice is affected by freezing the apples first. Earlston Orchard Town made summer fruits cordial.
There were stalls manned by a number of green Borders groups, including information on the Paris Climate Summit in December and a march in Edinburgh on December 28. Bread was sold by Breadworks and a raffle was held.
