The traditional sound of wassailing rang around the Petersfield Community Garden on Sunday 19 January when its members sang to the health of the trees in the garden’s orchard.

Wassailing was believed by our Pagan ancestors to encourage a good harvest. Today, it’s a way to bring the community together with mugs of warm cider around an open fire.

Our reporter Stephen Martin was in Steep to meet the participants – including the chair of the community garden, Sue Edberg.
