Recruiting

This site was primarily a repository for the history of Wakefield Morris over the first thirty years of existence i.e. when the editor was an active dancer and when the website came into existence. The diary and contacts will still be updated but day to day matters and developing repertoire will no longer be covered. But fear not, from the dusty back room video tapes (younger readers ask your parents) have been recovered and converted to modern DVD format. Details of the "tapes" are now on the "Galleries" page and details of how copies may be obtained. As of 2019 this content is now available in MP4 format. As of November 2016 I have finally completed the sometimes salacious potted biographies that form the "Roll of Honour" of all those who danced with the team in the first 30 years. Still some blanks to fill and always open to updates, the editor is always happy to hear from members or acquaintances.
