Apples were at the core of a community fun day in Belper on Saturday.
The town’s first-ever Apple Day took place in the Memorial Gardens.
Visitors took along their bags of washed apples to put them through a hand-cranked scratter and hydraulic press.
Around 2.5kg of apples produced one litre of juice, which could be enjoyed as a refreshing drink or used to ferment into cider. The mush left behind also had a use as compost or animal feed.
Transition Belper organised the free event at the King Street gardens, which also featured live entertainment, games and advice on making cider.
