Rutland Morris Men donate £800 cash to charity
At their recent AGM the treasurer reported that the Rutland Morris Men have donated £800, either in cash or kind, to local charities through their dancing shows in 2018-2019.
Their outgoing ‘squire’ Nick Kimberley said that it was a fulfilling outcome of their dancing programme and they were grateful to all those who contributed by putting money in their collecting box.
Rutland Morris elected new officials for the forthcoming year: Andrew Mills was ‘anointed’ as squire, Charles Speirs as bagman, Jonathan Unna as bagman and Jamie Mulvany as treasurer.
Thanks were offered to retiring officials.
The squire reported on their award winning trip to Albania commenting that it was an ‘unforgettable real experience’!
They will be putting their 2020 programme together in the next few months, and any organisations wishing to book the Morris should contact the bagman as soon as possible on: email@example.com
They begin their practice season this week and all newcomers are very welcome.
“We meet so many men who clearly would love to join us; it just takes an initial ‘plunge’ to get involved, said spokesman Dave Casewell.
“We are a great social group and you will make friends fast!
“You can be up and dancing within a month and then learn the finesse over the next 20 years!”
The group practice every Monday evening at 8pm at Ashwell Village Hall.
Just turn up, or contact the club via their website: www.morrismen.org.uk
