Wassail revisited

Its been a while

Given the miserable yield of apples this year and now we are a community of apple juice and cider “producers” we really ought to Wassail again.

February is usually a good time for this activity as we are all beginning to tire of winter and look forward to spring.

Proposed date 9/2/17 to coincide with a near full moon and pub food night. Full details tbc

A Wassail is a nod to our pagan past where we actively get out amongst the apple trees in the community and shout at them, read bountiful verses, feed the tree roots, leave toast hanging from the branches for the birds to feast on and you can dress up or down depending on the state of your wardrobe.

A Wassailing we go!
