Histon & Impington Community Orchard Project

Wassail-Wassail – 2015!

It was wonderful to see so many people at the orchard on a cold January evening for the second HICOP Wassailing. It was a fabulous evening with the orchard made to look special with tea lights in jars marking the centre circle and paths and the new beacon at the centre. The beacon lit up the orchard and was a focal point for the evening.

Everyone enjoyed the evening of singing led by the wonderful Re-Sound Choir who also helped us process through the trees. Special attention was given to the Histon Favourite apple tree, which was adorned with toast and ribbons and given a special toast by Mark Bianco. The mulled apple juice and cider helped keep us warm and washed down the plentiful supply of donated cakes.

Thank you to all the participants and everyone who contributed to organising and helping at the event.
