We have just had a successful couple of hours in the Orchard gathering wood for the Wassail bonfire.....the large pile is covered now so hopefully the wood will be dry enough to make a good blaze when we come to build the bonfire on Sunday 20 January 2019. We also collected pine cones which we take home to dry thoroughly, and these make the base of the fire together with dry kindling and candle ends (+ a few other secret ingredients tucked in by our magical bonfire builders).
We were pleased to have some families helping. Also we had our two Duke of Edinburgh students giving us a hand too.....so many thanks to everyone who helped.
We look froward to seeing everyone at the WASSAIL.
