Newsletter Autumn 2012

Well, the Olympics eventually turned out to more of a showcase for morris than we had been led to believe. A cameo appearance in the closing ceremony, and several sides dancing at the Olympic venues during the games at least brought our traditional dance to the attention of a world audience, though many of us feel that morris in the rural setting of the opening ceremony was a missed opportunity.

There is another high profile event in which morris can again get national publicity. This Newsletter gives details of a Joint Morris Organisation initiative to present a large cheque for Children in Need, with (hopefully) all of this country’s morris sides making a contribution.
