PANS were banged and whistles blown as villagers scared away bad spirits from a nearby orchard.
The annual tradition of wassailing, which also saw toast soaked in cider placed in tree branches, was held at Watchhouse Hill in Pill on Saturday in the hope of ensuring a good crop of apples in the coming year.
By lantern light, participants could also enjoy performances from the Pill Whalers and the village Morris dance group.
The event was organised by the Friends of Watchhouse Hill which is made up of volunteers who work to promote and maintain the public open space.
