Archive and library

Maids of Barum 1976 - photo courtesy of Sally WearingThe Morris Federation maintains an archive and a library and is always interested in receiving more items from our members.

The archive contains a lot of paperwork from the history of the Women’s Morris Federation and The Morris Federation, such as agendas, committee meeting minutes, AGM details, correspondence and side histories. There is also a photographic archive and the archives of a few dance sides have been donated when they folded.

The library consists of more than 200 books and leaflets. Items are available on free loan to any member of The Morris Federation. Members are asked to pay for postage if it is more than £2 and for the cost of returning items.

If you require further information or have something that you may wish to donate, please contact Mike Everett (Archive Officer).
