Thread Name: Folklore: Morris recruitment
Subject: RE: Folklore: Morris recruitment
This year our newish Surrey mixed Cotswold side has had three recruits from a mix of newspaper mentions, being seen dancing out and probably personal contact. There's a website and the odd press article. The side started about two to three years ago as a practice side. It came about as an offshoot of a choir, with strong family connections. This season's recruits are the first who haven't come purely from personal contact.
So far one has dropped out because Morris on top of an outdoor job was manifestly courting injury; the other two seem to be enjoying themselves.
