A day early because the 5th of January (Old New’s Eve) fell on a Sunday this year, Drayton Wassailers carried on the ancient tradition of the Drayton Wassail last night. Around the village they went, singing the Drayton Wassail song to various households. They paused at Norse Cottage and after they had sang for their supper, were invited in to partake of drink and food. Jane Markham and Bill Broomfield recorded the voices for the archives. Ending up at the Drayton Crown for their final performance of the evening. How lucky we are to have this tradition carrying on in our village.
