Newsletter Autumn 2014

Although an ageing membership may be an on-going concern for some long-established sides, it is very pleasing to feature in this issue several articles which focus on youth, in one way or another. The preservation of information on traditional dances and the exploration of new ways of presenting morris are just two facets of the interview with John, Sue and Laurel Swift. Several sides report on significant anniversaries and a new side describes how it came into being.
