Stafford Morris men held an open evening on 27th March to show people what goes on at a practice evening and invite them to have a go if they wish. This invitation was to any interested parties male or female over the age of eleven. We hoped to show the variety of the dances and explain a bit about the history of the tradition. Having written to 12 dance groups and other organinsations we had approximately zero response.

However, the evening went ahead but only produced two visitors, who already had an interest in Morris. One lady has agreed to play for us when needed which made it worthwhile if rather dissapointing. 



Stafford Morris Men are members of the Staffordshire Heritage Group, which covers the Historic County of Staffordshire.
The group's design for the county flag, (shown below), was registered by the Flag Institute after a public vote. We are taking the opportunity to wave this flag as often as possible.

Stafford Feast 2016
Yet another successful evening  with all the Ring officers present for the first time. Adam, the Squire; John, the Bagman; Stephen, the Treasurer and Ed, the Squire apparent. Excellent food, drink, and good company in this historic village hall at Church Eaton. Three new members were admitted by Max Haynes, who then formally handed over the Squire's regalia to Professor Alan Eardley, who agreed to pilot the club into its sixth decade.

Alan Eardley, together with Louis Arduino, David Barker and Sam Forrester danced in to a  Princess Royal double double jig.

For those who, (like most of us), were not able to decipher Simon's 'Toast to the Visitors' quickly enough.
