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

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!
