Apple Press

Transition Loughborough have a large apple press that is used every year between late August and mid November to perform community apple pressing events around the area.  This was funded by generous grants from Charnwood Borough Council and the Co-op in 2012 and in the first year of use we attended around a dozen events with the press. Its a great way of engaging folk with the food going to waste around them (most of the apples come from trees that would otherwise just be left to fall to the ground and rot).  Here’s a quick video of it in action at Old Dalby scouts event in November 2013:

We have built up a number of “regular” pressing events around the town that we take part in each year.  In 2018 we are limiting ourselves to a set of these existing events, as we have a limited availability of volunteers to transport, set up and run the pressing events.
