Ah Robbie...as a newcomer you wouldn't know that the 'Olympics' have been to Sidmouth before! I can't remember which year it was, but one of the Olympics years there were 'Marine Olympics' in the sea in front of the Bedford. I'm not sure if that was what led to Marine Morris, which happened for several years, with lots of Morris Sides dancing in the sea. That in turn led to the Middle Bar Singers parading down and into the sea and singing, which, though Marine Morris has long gone, we still do.

Love Lynne
