One of our volunteers Mark has been working for months restoring / creating an apple press and a scratter (which crushes apples before they go in the press) at Parke. Well, after all the hard work they are finished and they work!
Here is the apple press

Brilliant! This single pressing produced around 30 litres of juice.
Thanks Mark for all your hard work – a craftsman and a gentleman.
