The school was delighted to have been presented with an apple press this autumn, just in time to make juice from the apple trees in the garden. The press was very kindly donated by Linda and Paul Courtney, of Courtneys of Whimple, whose daughters Annabel and Jess used to attend BCPS.
Linda and Paul ran the first session using the press, to teach staff and help the children, and everyone drank the resulting juice together.
We plan to use the press for a variety of fruits and vegetables from the allotment in future, and have planted cherry, peach and plum trees as well as extra carrots and beetroots to provide plenty of ingredients!
Many thanks to the Courtneys for this generous gift.
