The Friends of Bourne Wood are are join­ing up with Bourne Border­ers for a Was­sail at the Com­mu­nity Or­chard off Beech Av­enue, Bourne at 4.30pm on Satur­day, Jan­uary 21. The groups are keen for peo­ple to join them on the day to cel­e­brate this tra­di­tional event where the trees are wo­ken, and thanks are said for this year’s har­vest. Bourne Border­ers will be danc­ing and per­form­ing their mum­mers play and there will be re­fresh­ments avail­able through­out. Any­one in­ter­ested in go­ing along is en­cour­aged to bring torches and lanterns to light their way into the or­chard and pots and pans to make lots of noise to awaken the trees. And re­mem­ber to wrap up warmly. More in­for­ma­tion on www. friend­sof­bournewoods.org. uk.
