A bumper fruit crop this autumn ensured Sudbury’s annual apple pressing day was a lively affair.
Members of Sudbury and District Transition Group invited people to come along to the town’s Market Hill on Saturday to get their apples pressed, so they could take away the juice to enjoy. The offer proved popular and a constant stream of people lined up to take advantage of the initiative.
According to Jane Hatton, project manager of the group, the idea came about several years ago when one of the Transition members saw someone throwing a load of apples away because they didn’t know what to do with them.
She said: “People have apple trees in their garden or forage for apples from orchards and this is a good way of helping people make the most of their produce.
“This is the third year we have held the event and because the weather was so good this summer, a lot of people have a surplus of apples ready for pressing.”
