Dance Outs

We dance out on May day morning with Brackley Morris, and manage to steal all the publicity by getting on Anglia Television and being photographed by the Banbury Guardian too! (see photo page).

Big events this year include our first foreign trip, to Hennef  in Germany, a part of a twinning exchange with Banbury, (details here), another trip to Morris in the Forest and of course, the wedding our our own Lin Walker and Pete Martin in Daventry.

As part of our foreign trip we add dancing in the bar on the ferry and dancing in a Belgian Motorway service area to our collection.

More New Dancers

Lin Martin (nee Walker) comes back, and Pete Martin, Liz Morris, Nigel and Richard Bennett were all new dancers this year and Ann Harpur, our first dancer from another side (apart from the Cannells), moves to Woodford and joins us.  Ann was a clog dancer before she joined us and occasionally could be persuaded, along with Pat C, to get them out again whilst we were out dancing.  Joan Turvey dropped out mid year.
