Every year since the orchard at Hilly Fields was planted we have held a wassail event which has always proved to be much fun and this year was no exception with a great turn out on a mild Sunday afternoon. With new additions to the orchard this year it was decided that one of the new trees should be dedicated to the memory of Fran Rogers who was instrumental in the creation of the orchard. We're very pleased that Fran's family could attend the wassail event and it was fitting that Fran's wassail song that was specifically penned for this event was sung again. The musical nature of this event has improved considerably over the last couple of years with the additions of an accordion, guitar and drum! Each tree in the orchard was toasted and we're happy to report that the orchard is doing very well and we look forward to the 5th birthday event in January 2015. If you would like to be more involved with the orchard please email us!
