Thanks to volunteers Lindsey Death and Lydia Titterton for their hard work. The children said the best part of the day was 'collecting the apples, squishing the apples, juicing the apples, drinking the juice and making the bird feeders - all of it then! They learnt about why fruit is so good for us, why fallen fruit should be removed from the ground and how to feed birds without spilling seed on the ground - all top tips to keep the island rat-free. 

Thanks to Mike Hicks from '28 miles' for use of the apple press and providing us with his bottled apple juice as an extra treat!
