COPSE New Year Wassail for 2020's crop
COPSE could not wait for the Orchard Wassails taking place on the twelth night after Christmas, so we brought the New Year in with a small Wassail to ensure the 2020 crop, with the following reading:
'Stand fast, root! bear well, top!
Pray God send us a good howling crop:
Every twig, apples big;
Every bough, apples enow!'
Followed by a chorus of howls from the COPSE... to banish the bad spirits of 2019!
