Wassail Celebration

February 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We’re bringing back the Wassail tradition in the new Community Orchard! This will be a fun event planned by the Community Orchard group – come along to sing, make noise and encourage the trees to grow well this year. Also a great chance to find out more about the orchard and get involved.

For those who don’t know, an Apple Wassail is an old way to celebrate apple trees and wish for a good harvest (and ward off any malicious spirits who might be lurking about the orchard!). We value it and revive it now because it warms the heart, brings people together, and helps us give importance to our young orchard trees, and to the wisdom in the old ways of stewarding the land. The Community Orchard group has planned apple drinks, songs, poetry, and merry noise-making activities. We hope you will join us!

Please choose active travel (walk/wheel/cycle/public transport) if at all possible, rather than driving – for the benefit of all local residents (of all species!).

Meet us at the green portacabin at the back of the Toby Carvery, or round in the Community Orchard (just past the fenced allotments, on the right hand side as you come in via Toby Carvery). Access note: There are no steps, but we will be off the compacted path and onto rough grassy ground.
