Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Pre-school chil­dren took part in this year’s Cob­nuts Kinder­garten ap­ple press­ing dur­ing a day packed full of ac­tiv­i­ties.

Jacky Witt, a sup­porter of the kinder­garten in Gat­land Lane, Maid­stone, helped set it up and was relieved the weather held out on Satur­day.

She said: “It went very well and we were lucky it didn’t rain.

“We were crush­ing and squeez­ing ap­ples to make juice, au­tumn craft ac­tiv­i­ties and we had chil­dren mak­ing leaf-rub­bing pic­tures.

“Lots of chil­dren who are at the kinder­garten came as well as those who used to go.

“Ev­ery­one al­ways en­joys the ap­ple press­ing, es­pe­cially the dads and lots of peo­ple took ap­ple juice home with them.

“There was a group play­ing mu­sic, in­clud­ing gui­tar and vi­olin.

“We had lots of re­fresh­ments and ev­ery­body brought their home made cakes. It was a re­ally nice af­ter­noon.”
