Family event in the Greenway Orchard Sat 3 Feb- 2pm – a Wassail to help the trees bear fruit

Published by Ros Southern on

Want to join an old English custom in the Greenway Orchard?  We will be ‘wassailing’ (singing) to the apple/pear trees, to ‘help’ them bear ample amount of fruit to ensure a good harvest.

Saturday 3 February 2-3.30, rain or shine, come along to the Orchard (next to Boundary Lane)

  • Tour of the Orchard/history/tree identification/info
  • Singing, processing and pot banging (bring your own saucepans and lids)
  • Small bonfire to toast marshmallows
  • Apple cakes/pies competition – bring yours along on the  day
  • Crowning (decorating) an apple tree
  • Warm drinks and lovely apple cakes/pies 🙂

Do come along and find out about how you can use the Orchard and the growing space.  This is a child-friendly event – children must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult.  Please wear appropriate clothes for an outdoor event and a fire – no loose clothes or flammable clothes.

We look forward to spending an unusual Saturday afternoon with you!
