CROWDS gathered to join the seasonal fun of wassailing in Blagdon last week.

The event, based on the ancient Somerset tradition, was held to bless the village’s orchards in order to bring a bumper crop of apples this year.

The Mercury caught up with organiser Olga Shotton in the village’s orchard to chat about the tradition.
