Wassailing the orchard 17 January

Today is the old date of twelfth night, the traditional date for wassailing orchards and tending to the trees. Following on from our  event last year, we invited the Petersfield Community Choir  to  come and sing to the trees in our orchard area.

We shared apple pies and apple cake, washed down with mulled cider and apple juice.
