A COMMUNITY has continued an ancient tradition and gone wassailing.

The Hook Eagle Morris Men joined a wassail on Sunday, starting at the Waggon and Horses, in Hartley Wintney.

The group started with a procession to Vaughn Millennium Orchard in Hunts Common, where singing and a blessing of the orchard took place.

The wassail is an English tradition meant to help apples grow to make cider.
