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