Winter Solstice celebration bonfire warms the cockles

On Saturday 18th of December, 2 – 4pm, PEDAL held a Winter Solstice Celebration at Donkeyfield Community Orchard. Around 40 people came along to celebrate this most seasonal of events, including several folk who had never been to the orchard before – not bad for sub-zero temperatures. The trees were wassailed in fine fashion (thanks to Gordon for the local cider, and Mairi for the song from the Winter’s Night concert), Peter brewed up some fine mulled wine and created a fantastically warming fire, Beth told a great story and some lovely lanterns were made.
