Apple Juicing Day

The weather could not have been better for Transition Town Wellington’s annual Apple Juicing Day, held this year at Swains Lane Nature Reserve, on Saturday October 4. Over thirty people of all ages took part in the event, which included a picnic and live music. 

Val Mister, a member of the TTW Food Group, said: “I was able to bring my two grandsons with me, and they got really involved with the process and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did all the other children who came. The whole event was a great success, and helped to raise awareness among local people of the existence of the Reserve and Community Orchard. 

It was encouraging to hear comments like ‘What a lovely place!’ and ‘I never knew it was here. I’ll be coming back.’ We expect to hold an Apple Juicing Day there again in the future.”
