Thanks for all the support

Since 2013, Moor Sustainable CIC has worked in North East Yorkshire to help improve the sustainability of the communities and environment of the North York Moors and surrounding areas. All the projects we undertook linked to our objectives of improving the natural and built environment; reducing the use of carbon and helping to develop stronger communities. Due to a change in focus of the Directors we decided to wind up the company at the end of March. We’d like to thank all those who have supported our work over the past nine years.

Moor Sustainable helped kick start the Climate Action Stokesley and Villages (CASaV) group in 2019. This group is a natural successor to take forward work on sustainability in part of our area. Therefore, CASaV have bought the apple pressing equipment and will be running an apple pressing event in the autumn and lending out the equipment through a virtual Share Shed that the CASaV Waste group are setting up. Also, our Bug Trail project in Great Ayton will now be managed by CASaV. Over the past nine years we have provided a wide range of information related to energy and will ensure that it will still be available through Whitby Esk Energy.

Any surplus once Moor Sustainable CIC is wound up will go to our asset lock, the North Yorkshire Moors Association.

New Year’s Eve Ceilidh 2021 – cancelled

We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s New Year’s Eve Ceilidh due to current situation with the new coronavirus strain.

We thought it better to cancel now rather than wait until next week when we expect the Government to be placing more restrictions on activity indoors and the number of people meeting from different households as has happened already in Scotland and Wales.

Book a slot to press your apples

Details of the public apple pressing sessions using our equipment:

Saturday 2 October at High Banks Farm East Barnby
Tel 01947 893983 or email.

Saturday 9 October at 28 The Lane, Mickleby
Tel 01947 840708 / 07866 235455 or email

Sunday 17 October at Avenue House, Great Fryup Dale, Lealholm
Tel 07981 396398/ 01947 666184 or email.

Please bring your apples already washed and with any bad bits cut out and you can crush and press them with our equipment. Bring clean containers for your juice; as a guide 10kg apples produces on average 5 litres of juice.

There will be a charge of £5 to cover costs of equipment hire. It may be possible to pasteurise your juice depending which event you go to, in which case you need to bring clean glass bottles (screw top wine bottles are ideal) and would cost 50p per bottle in addition.
