Community Apple Presses

12LitrePressThe Community Apple Press Project 

Yes…it’s that time of year again…..the Ashurst & Colbury Community Group’s apple pressing kits have been brought out of storage! It looks like this year will see a bumper crop of fruit so we’re expecting lots of pressing, brewing and drinking 🙂

The ACCG has three sets of kit with all that you need to turn your apple harvest into delicious juice.  Find out more about the presses.



The kits get a power washing after being taken out of storage…..

The presses and scratters (crushers) are being spruced up in readiness so if you want to have a go just head over to the site and book up your kit. The kits are available free to residents of Ashurst and Colbury and to anyone else for the price of a small donation to our funds.

Ashurst’s Apple Day 2016

Each year we hold an Apple Day event in the Church Rooms on Deerleap Lane. Everyone is invited to bring supplies of apples to juice. Expert guidance is on hand to help you get the most from your crop. And you can fortify yourselves with cakes, teas, coffees, apple juice(!) and ploughmans lunches. It’s great fun for young and old…..

This year the event will take place on Saturday 1 October 11-3. For more information ring Richard on 023 8029 2531.
