Wassail at Bourne's community orchard attracts a crowd of people to enjoy morris dancing and historic folk customs

A community orchard was looking ‘magical and pretty’ as evil spirits were warded off for another year and thanks was given for a good harvest.

Saucepans were banged, dancers from Bourne Borderers Morris performed and toast was hung on trees as the wassailing took place in the community orchard at Bourne Wood on Saturday evening.

It began with a traditional morris dance before ‘Apple Tree Wassail’ was sung and people were led to the orchard by wassail queen Holly Redman and princess Felicity Redman for the main event.
