North Cadbury Wassail

What a great evening we had in North Cadbury for our annual Wassail.  Although muddy underfoot the skies stayed fairly dry and allowed proceedings to go with a bang!  After being entertained by the Wyvern Jubilee Morris Men, we were led to the orchard by our Wassail Queen Isobel Kettle from North Cadbury.  Eventually the Master of Ceremonies, Alan Stone, regailed us of the history of wassailing and led us in singing the wassail song before the Wassail Queen placed toast in the branches of an apple tree and poured cider around it’s roots to encourage a bountiful crop in the coming year.  Around 100 guests were treated to mulled cider and apple juice, not forgetting the bacon butties and burgers, all served by the jolly members of Brue Valley Rotary Club.   After the ceremonies many guests retired to The Catash Inn where they enjoyed a lovely supper and were entertained once again by the Wyvern Jubilee Morris Men who performed an amusing Mummers play.

Well done everyone for your hard work in raising over £700 for charity.
