What can I say about the morris world over the past year? Little did I think at the summer issue in 2020 we would still be here in virtual morris land. Our team are still having virtual meetings and trying to remember the dances and I was able to call on a fellow team member to write about her experiences as a Health and Safety advisor during the pandemic months – she has been kept incredibly busy! Sadly, several morris friends have died over the past few months – but we are able to look back on their wonderful lives. Roll on happier dancing times.
