I am still free to come along with you jon on 16th but if you can find someone who can help with the driving that's fine by me

Need to double check at work but should be OK for me to be in a bit late. Can anyone tell me when place in Cheam opens? I would want to be there as it opens. Also need to know how big it is. Have an oldish Volvo which is not a hatchback but I can open boot and put down back seat. Will it fit? I would probably bring scatter along Saturday morning.

Also is it heavy, or can I unload it from a car on my own.

There is no mention of Monday. It would be easier for me if someone else could take it back. But can do if need be.

Oh, and what is the address?

Billiangel volunteered to get the press and scratter from Cheam on the Friday, if that helps. If Billi's offer still stands, then we just need someone to get the press and scratter back to Cheam on Monday.

Re Cheam: the info is all here

Press breaks down quite small, and isn't heavy. It's one of those that looks like a big barrel, with a screw up the middle of it. The barrel splits into two pieces, so the only awkward shape is the base and the screw. Should fit comfortably in a car with the seats down. Richard (of Cheam) can help loading at his end, and we (or someone from the farm) can help at the farm end.

Hope that helps.

Do we need to have a meet up?

...if you press it, they will come.

Ok folks I need definitive answers from people please!?

Who is going to make cider this year?
(anyone interested needs to ensure that they have the appropriate equipment already or buying from Richard in Cheam in time for the pressing)

Who wants to help out at the cider pressing on Saturday 17th Oct, at Surrey Docks City Farm?

Is Billiangel still interested? There was an offer of collecting equipment from Cheam on Friday 16th

Sarah - can you still transport equipment?

Anyone interested in making cider, or helping, please send me a pm (click on 'reply via PM)

We are going to have a cider meet up to get final organisation sorted, either sometime Sunday, or Monday night - preferences please.

please include contact details in pm - email address, or mobile phone no.

I'll be there, but will have to make it short and snappy.

Van is booked for Friday.

...if you press it, they will come.
Tuesday 13 October 2009 10.32am
we need to know who wants what - I know it's getting nearly time for pressing, but at the moment we don't have a definitive list of who will turn up and help, and who wants to take juice to make cider.

I know that Ivanhoe, and I do, and Jac, possibly Sarah(2), maybe Plum, maybe Gillian, and the Farm.

anyone else?

Andrew ?

The pressing is this Saturday! at Surrey Docks City Farm - Rotherhithe.
