Two ciders produced in Wells have been recognised with national awards.
Mark and Lisa Jarvis of Whin Hill Cider in Wells are celebrating double success in the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) National Cider and Perry Championships.
Having already won awards in the East Anglian regional competitions last autumn, their browns cider has now won a national silver award while their perry picked up bronze.
Andrea Briers, CAMRA National Cider and Perry Committee chairman, presented the awards and congratulated Mark and Lisa on their achievement.
It is highly unusual for any producer to gain two awards in a single year and earlier in July Mark and Lisa celebrated with CAMRA members from two Norfolk branches.
