Parish Council meeting Agenda for January

The minutes of the December meeting slightly obscured by January's agenda.


This Saturday night 11th January at 7pm there is a Wassail in the orchards at Haywood Farm, followed by mulled cider and stew in the cider house. Wassailing is an ancient custom used to thank the apple trees and the earth for past and future crops and to ward off evil spirits! It involves meeting in the cider house and drinking mulled cider until we're sufficiency prepared to proceed to the orchard. We shall go to the oldest apple tree on the farm where we shall perform some random activities which constitute a wassail, hopefully some traditional wassail songs will be sung, more cider drank and then we shall trip back to the cider house for cider, stew and whatever! 
Everyone welcome, will need to charge to cover the food and drink, thirsty, hungry sorts £12.50, dieting drivers... not a lot and children free. If anyone would like to do any research and contribute to the evening in anyway feel free! It's all new to me so any input appreciated. Warm clothes and wellies essential. Dress like a lunatic if you like. Need to know rough numbers for food so message me or phone me if you're keen. 07919 182196. Wassail is also used as a 'good health' greeting, so happy new year and wassail! Tom
