Royal Oak's 30th Anniversary
Royal Oak Morris celebrated its 30th anniversary on the 3rd of October 2015 with over a hundred guests including visiting sides and past members of the side. We all danced at the Royal Oak in Eydon and the Cross Keys in Byfield followed by a feast at the village hall in Byfield.

The original members of the side, Kevin and Sue Lodge and Pat & John Cannell, who are still members, were presented with engraved tankards. All attendees were presented with a commemorative badge and bottle of cider.
