AFTER two years, a popular wassail ceremony returned in 2022.

Glastonbury Abbey hosted its event on Sunday, January 16.

More than 300 participants, led by OBOD’s local Ash Grove, promenaded round the orchard perimeter celebrating the trees with song before spiralling in to the 'Grandmother Tree'.

After the traditional wassail, cider and toast offerings, visitors said words of praise for the apple tree's many gifts.

One highlight of the day was the children's vigorous percussion accompaniment with their ’shaky eggs’.
