Michael Stimpson has handled The MF Insurance and then the JMO Insurance for over 20 years. During that time he has used his negotiation skills and knowledge of the Insurance industry, plus collective purchasing, to keep our insurance costs to a minimum. This has benefitted all teams across The Morris Federation, the Morris Ring, and Open Morris.

Michael first insured Open Morris with Royal Insurance in 1985, before their merger with Sun Alliance. Then in 2001 took over the policy for The Morris Federation and the Morris Ring. He merged them into one JMO policy in 2003/4 and increased the cover from £5M to £10M, saving money for all three organisations.

Michael has also done so much to promote morris dancing and folk music in Hertfordshire.

Michael is Squire of Phoenix Morris, which is a member of all three organisations.

Last year Open Morris awarded Michael life membership of their organisation.
