Welcome to 2008. In this issue we have the first instalment of the second part of Roy Dommett’ s autobiography! I took a tape recorder to his house, where he talked about life, the universe and everything related to morris; more will be included in later issues. Sue Swift reports on the broadcast of a fascinating programme about Mary Neal and we also have thoughts on various customs from cheese rolling (you have to read it!) to Jack in the Green and mumming.
