2015 – 2016

Items of note

Ray Cunningham succeeded Ali Worsley as squire.

The team attended IVFDF 2016 in Coventry. Many beers were drunk. On the way home Alix bought a train ticket to Shenfield by mistake. These events may have been connected.

We had a lot of fun at the JMO day of dance in York. James found that a 50 pence piece fitted exactly inside a 3/4″ bell, simultaneously losing him 50p and making said bell useless.

Chris Taylor won the inaugural Cliff Barstow Jig Competition at Shepley Spring Festival.

We pulled the Ossett Beercart. Again.

The team attended Sidmouth Folk Week to run kids’ morris workshops. A fantastic week of teaching, dancing and making new friends. Ali made a new friend and put up with Clive all week.

We attended Shrewsbury Folk Festival as part of a sizeable Sheffield contingent which also included Sheffield Steel and Pecsaetan. We had a consistent two sets up and danced a four-set Country Gardens with Pecsaetan.

Special thanks to Darren and Liz for sorting us loads of new kit this year.
