Musbury Primary School children take part in a tradtional wassailing ceremony to boost the apple harvest

Pupils at Musbury Primary School combined Red Nose Day events with a tree planting, as they took part in a traditional wassailing ceremony.

The youngsters hung pieces of toast in the branches and banged saucepans to boost the future apple harvest. They also sang a song they composed with ‘Folk South West’ and cooked and ate apple crumble.

An apple expert was also there to tell everyone about orchards.
