Squire Peter Morton told The Herald that it was important to keep the local tradition going.

“We would like to recruit new people. It is a lot of fun, a good social thing and it keeps you fit!” he said.

The Morris Men meet on Tuesdays from 7pm at The Bottle Inn, Marshwood. Anyone interested in joining – either as a dancer (men only) or a musician - is welcome to go along and find out more.

Alternatively they can contact Mr Morton on 07917 748 087 or email petemorton56@googlemail.com
