Uplyme Morris Men help wake up the apple trees
Wassailers put on a rousing performance
UPLYME Morris Men put on a rousing performance to wake up winter’s slumbering orchards.
They were at Lyme Regis Museum for the annual wassailing celebrations
Around 50 enthusiasts joined in the fun of waking up the apple trees with loud music and singing, led by Adrian Pearson, Ian Thompson and Helen Case.
A toast for a good apple harvest was followed by traditional Morris music and dancing outside.
