IT Resources: Advice and Support

About the IT Resources Section

The IT Resources area has been set up to support Morris Federation sides and the wider morris and traditional dance communities in making use of online and other IT services to support their marketing and promotion, communications, archiving and related activities.

This area was launched at the Morris Federation AGM on 25 September 2021.
