Wassailing has been a tradition practised in Britain for centuries. It was also the perfect opportunity for community members and colleagues at Grange Village to get together on Friday.
Wassailing has its roots in a pagan custom of visiting orchards to sing to the trees in the hope of ensuring a good harvest the following season.
Everyone came together in the Grange Village garden to sing, play instruments and enjoy some of our very own apple juice in the fresh, January air.
A fantastic way to spend the afternoon!
The word ‘wassail’ is believed to be derived from the Old English ‘was hál’, meaning ‘be hale’ or ‘good health’
