A very varied set of contributions this time, with a definite lean to the South West of the country. Thank you to all those from the Devon area for contributing so much. I hope you all enjoy reading the articles.

There are several May Day items which is nice, as so many of us were away taking part in the various celebrations going on. I was in Hastings this time, blessed for the most part with good weather, good dancing, and a thoroughly good time! Don’t forget, it’s never too late to write and let us know what you have been doing, or what you are about to do!

Rhian Collinson (Notation Officer) has some great summer bargains for you, including news of the video’s of the Wantage weekends, contact her to place your orders.

We continue the occasional series of Key Figures in the Morris with an article by Derek Schofield about Cecil Sharp. If there is someone about whom you would like to write, as part of this series, then please, send it in.

Most importantly, there seem to be a lot of sides who have not yet rejoined, as you are out and about in the summer with other sides, please jog each others’ memories about the state of your membership.

Lastly there has been some ‘wonderful’ press coverage of Morris recently …… what do you think? Write and let us know.

Copy date for the next newsletter will be 1Oth August. There’s lots going on so write and tell us all about it!
