Newsletter Summer 2011

Once again the morris welcomes in the May with dancing at remote and unpopulated locations at an ungodly hour for those who really like to get into the spirit of things, or to the masses at festivals, fetes and such like. Some sides have already travelled to foreign parts, and many are planning to do so during the summer.  Apart from these, and other regular features, the Summer Newsletter includes  ideas on recruitment and training, the place of traditional dance in fiction, and much more!
