Core! Children have fun crushing Granny (Smiths)

ABOUT 120 people attended the annual apple day in Watlington.

ABOUT 120 people attended the annual apple day in Watlington.

Visitors to the Paddock were able to pulp apples in a crusher before transferring them to a press and straining them to make juice.

There was also an apple Olympics which included a competition to see who could throw an apple the furthest.

Organisers Alex Tait, of Gorwell, and David Shannon, of Shirburn Street, started the event five years ago to allow other people to make use of their crusher and presser.

Mr Tait said: “We were lucky because it was nice and dry and we made about 400 litres of juice during the course of the day.

“Children really enjoy it because they get a chance to be involved.”

Last year’s apple day was cancelled due to bad weather.
