Newsletter Spring 2015

This year we celebrate the 40th year of The Morris Federation, so the main focus in this issue is on reflections back to earlier times. However, we also look to present day concerns such as health and safety, and to the future in using modern technology to improve availability of information about morris dancing in all its manifestations.
