WOT2Grow - Community Orchard

At last winter has come with the cold weather hopefully killing off some bugs and diseases at the orchard! It arrived just in time for our Wassail which took place on a cold crisp evening with just the odd drop pf rain that didn't dampen the event. It was good to see people enjoying the bonfire (courtesy of our very own Firemaster David), hot mulled cider and apple juice as well as the BBQ provided by Kineton Scouts as we waited for it to get dark. The torch lit procession was very atmospheric and our Master of the Wassail (Duncan resplendent in smock, decorated hat and with a wonderful wooden staff!) kept everyone in the spirit of things. The children certainly did their very best to make a lot of noise competing with the gun shots that rang through the orchard. We can definitely say we have our very own Wassail tradition that will carry on into the future. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the evening and to all those who came along and enjoyed it.

Now it is colder we will be getting down to the pruning and clearing the autumn raspberry canes so there is plenty to keep us occupied over the next month or so.  If you want to help out or for more information about the orchard  contact one us.
