A Mayhem of Morrismen
Anker Morris Men’s 40th birthday celebrations seemed the perfect opportunity for some of the younger members of the side to experience a meeting of the Morris ring. I believe that Lassington Oak hasn’t attended a ring meeting for around ten years making this a special weekend for us as well.
The weekend kicked off on Friday with food at the venue and a great session at the White Lion thanks to Jess and Richard Arrowsmith for hosting it.
Saturday was full of dancing at various locations around Nuneaton with plenty of singing and tunes on the bus. The quality of the dancing from everyone was high and we were pleased that our dancing was well received.
The weekend finished with more display and massed dances from the various sides involved on the Sunday unfortunately we needed to leave a little early and didn’t see the weekend through to the complete end.
Thank you Anker for a superbly organised and thoroughly enjoyable weekend we’re looking forward to seeing all of you again at your ale.
