If you hate waste, call Abundance, a Surbiton project aimed at harvesting and redistributing gluts of fruit from gardens, allotments and street trees, saving it from being thrown away.

Last year, 1.3 tons of fresh organic fruit was harvested in and around Surbiton, with this year’s target being to better that. 

Toni Izard needs volunteers able to spare a couple of hours in the fresh air.

“It’s mainly fruit trees, and all equipment is provided,” she said.

“It’s a fun way to meet new people from your area, and get some of this precious harvest for yourself.”

If you can help, or you know of fruit in danger of going to waste, or you can use fruit for preserving (it’s mainly apples and pears, minimum 5kg) or juicing, email abundance@ttkingston.org  or call 07749 633973.

“Please pass the word round – we can only harvest the trees we know about!” added Toni, who has a press to borrow if you want to make your own juice in your home, together as a street or on the allotment.
