"When the Glebe Morris first started we put an ad in the local paper - It said something along the lnes of " Dancers wanted to form New Morris Side - No Riff Raff" - can't quite remember just how sucesssful it was..."
That was not when the Glebe first started, it was around 1980(?). I remember because I was taken to task about it at some meeting of the West Mids morris police. They were also objecting that Glebe welcomed women to apply too. I think I accused them of taking morris too seriously....which went down well.
