This issue of Morris Matters could not avoid the Olympics – but what a range – from the dancer who set out to dance the Olympic route [not exactly following the flame – but all the way from Athens to London, with a few diversions!] through the Mollympics of the Norwich Kitwitches to the Rapperlympics in London. Andy, our artist, meanwhile, avoided all reference to the Olympics and instead produced the wonderful cover to keep you amused while waiting for a train to arrive or a traffic queue to go (the key is on inside back cover). With less than 2 weeks to go, there is a sudden interest in having Morris displays but most of us are off on our holidays, going to festivals and/or acting as volunteers; right at the start, the 3 organisations mooted getting morris into the Olympic activities and it was vetoed – what a shame.
