Squeezy does it

APPLE loving residents flocked to Mizzymead Rise in Nailsea to see their surplus fruit pressed into juice.

The apple day was put on by Transition Town Nailsea for the second year running and, over the course of the afternoon, an impressive 42 litres of juice was produced.

Volunteers also tucked into mulled cider, cheese, home-made chutney, apple cakes and crumble as a reward for their hard work.

Transition Town Nailsea is reviving long-lost traditions associated with apple growing and the apple harvest and the group hopes that more people will want to use and celebrate local fruit as it is keen to make links back to Nailsea’s history as a major cider-producing town.
