A CIDER maker who suffered a broken spine two years ago forcing him to leave his trade is hoping to pass on his skills to others.
Steve Cooper, who runs Tardebigge Cider with wife Christine, has seen their income reduced over the past 18 months because the pandemic.
The couple have now conceded they can no longer take part in the festivals and shows which were their main marketing vehicle.
However they have now embarked on a new venture, teaching others how to make cider and are keen to hear from people interested in learning the process to get in touch.
The first courses will run this Saturday and Sunday, October 23 and 24, and then next weekend, October 28 and 29.
On the courses, which are £152 per person, participants will learn to make fresh apple juice from the apples they pick, along with craft cider as well as recipes with cider and apple juice.
