A new orchard in Brightwell cum Sotwell

This weekend we planted the new Little Martins Orchard in the village just in time to be wassailed the next day.

Orchard members and local residents braved the rain and wind to plant 12 fruit trees - apple, pear, plum, cherry and a medlar.


Yet another successful and fun Wassail in Brightwell cum Sotwell on a cold and rainy afternoon.

Over 500 people processed through the village wassailing in orchards along the route; lead by the magnificent Armaleggan Border Morris dancers.
