This year our apple pressing took place in a new venue – the new “Climate Emergency Centre” run by the newly-formed “One Planet Abingdon” group. The Town Council have offered the use of the former Mousehole Cafe (under the museum) free for a year, and ACC’s apple pressing was the first event.
Our usual volunteers turned out in force, apples were brought as well as an extraordinary harvest of grapes from someone’s back yard. We pasteurised several hundred bottles of apple and grape juice which will be available for a £2 donation at the CEC when it reopens. Already donations totalling £230 were received during the pressing.
We even had some help with the pressing from some very small volunteers!
Well done all! Sally.
