Subject: Info appeal - Ivinghoe Plough Stots
From: BobL

Once upon a time there was a Youth Hostel - now closed - in the village of Ivinghoe, the wardens being Jim & Jean Chaplin, a wonderful couple. Running the hostel kept them too busy to pursue their folkie interests, beyond organising barn dances on a fairly regular basis. However at some time, a group of hostellers got together to learn longsword dancing and a mummers' play, performing them under the name of the "Ivinghoe Plough Stots".

Are there any ex-hostellers (or indeed current but no longer youthful hostellers) out there who took part in these activities and would be willing to share their memories?

Hullo. I'm George Norris and I played there although I can't remember much about it - or indeed lots of things - but I'm still in contact with Dusty Pulver who might. I'll ask him.

I have photos of them performing Ivinghoe Plough Stots and tapes of performances in the town hall. I'll dig them out and tranfer them to CD when I get time. I'll stick the photos on my web site.
Will report back with URLs when complete.
For interest, the 1970 Ivinghoe Folk Festival program credits the following people:
Pauline Perkin
Les Sims
Norah Campbell
Chris Enever
Rob Sims
Peter Warden
Cliff Wedgebury
The Waltham Blacks
Malcolm Price
Pete Huggins
The Cobblers
Tim Hart & Maddy Prior
Dave and Toni Arthur
John Pulver
Rose & Ted
Gerry Lockran
George Norris
Martin Johns
Don Riley
Don Snoad
Jim & Jean Chaplin

I'll scan the program and stick on my website ASAP.
- Dusty
