An event to celebrate the humble apple was held today with fruit-lovers enjoying apple-themed games and freshly squeezed apple juice.

From 11am to 3pm residents were invited to use the on-site apple press at The Mill in Coppermill Lane, Walthamstow, while live folk music accompanied the activities like wind-chime and head-dress making.

The free event was organised and run by the Blackhorse Action Group, The Mill Garden Squad and E17 Fruit Bag, a community based fruit-growing project.
