The Summer seems to have flown past at an alarming rate and Autumn has certainly arrived, with the MF AGM coming around at the end of the month.

This issue sees a lot of Team Talk’ … that is, news from member sides. It’s great to have an article from lnverkeithing Stepdancers, a new member team from Scotland, and also an article from a new Cotswold team, Pecsaetan. It was thought that a ‘regional news’ section would be a useful addition to the newsletter, so if you know what’s happening in your region .. . or know someone that does … let me know!

There are 2 workshops planned for the Autumn, and 1 for the Spring 2004. Booking forms are included with the newsletter, so please let Jean have your forms ASAP if you wish to attend one. If you have any ideas for workshops that you would like the Federation to organise in the future, please let Jean know.

This will be the last time that John and Adrian will contribute to the newsletter in their committee roles of President and Archive Officer. I would like to say, on behalf of all the members of the Morris Federation, a huge thank you for all the hard work that they have both put into the Federation over the past few years. All of us on the committee will really miss working with them. I hope that they will keep in touch with the Federation in the future, and of course contribute to the newsletter, and that they will receive a grand ‘send off’ at the AGM at the end of September.
