Happy New Year! We’ve got two outdoor events in January, Covid permitting. The first is our Winter Wassail, held on Saturday 15h January.
Join us as we make merry and celebrate the success of our community orchard! A Wassail is an ancient rural English celebration giving fruit growers and pickers the opportunity to drink to the good health of their fruit trees and to an abundant crop in the coming year. It also brings light, noise, laughter and cheer to the longer, darker winter months. With a Wassail Master to oversee proceedings and our own Wassail troubadours – this is a community and family event not to be missed! Tickets are just £4.50 per adult and children are free. Book on Eventbrite.
The next event is our Winter Walk on the Common, held on Saturday 22nd January. We will explore the spaces and species that make Barnes Common what is it today! We will observe and chat about habitats, plants, animals and more, as we look to see if we can spot any signs of spring emerging. We will walk as a group around the Common but we will be mindful of people who would prefer to set their own pace. This event is suitable for people of all ages. Refreshments are available to purchase from The Feel Good Bakery, who are now located at Vine Road Recreation Ground. This walk is free but ticketed. Book on Eventbrite.
