Was what? Wassailing is an ancient ceremony that dates back to Anglo-saxon times, it involves toasting the health of the apple trees and scaring away evil spirits in order to ensure a bumper crop next year!
For the first time in living memory, the Weston Mummmers and the Broadmoor Lane Residents Association have got together to organise a Wassail in the Old Orchard in Broadmoor Lane on the traditional old twelth night - Saturday the 17th of January.
Meet at 7pm in the Orchard.
All are welcome.
A lantern or torch (to read the song sheet)
Something to make a noise (a horn, bell, drum - a saucepan and wooden spoon will do)
A cup (there will be mulled cider and hot punch)
There will be a collection which will be donated to the Dorothy House Hospice.
