Open evening 26 October – save the date and Priston Jubilee Morris!

How important do you think the Morris is to Priston village and the surrounding areas?

This may seem like a strange question, but the reason for asking is that Priston Jubilee Morris is on its uppers, on its beam-ends, close to collapse.

If you are thinking to yourself, “So what?” or “Hooray!” then read no further, and we are sorry to have bothered you.

However, if the thought of losing a local group that has been maintaining a very English tradition for the past 38 years in a small village close to Bath is a sad prospect for you, then consider what can be done to save it from extinction: we need new members or the team will fold.

If you have any feelings for the continuation of Priston Jubilee Morris, then also consider whether you or anyone you know would be willing to give it a try.

Any questions or nominations please contact us so that we can tell you more.

Open evening – Monday 26 October from 8pm

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I only moved to Wells last February, and shifted over from Icknield Way Morris Men for a huge transfer fee, which was unusual only in that they paid Cam Valley to accept me, so dire is my dancing. But I jest.

    So all the history and bad blood between Priston and Cam Valley was way before my time, so I am in a position to naively suggest merger talks. Whether this would constitute a more fanciful notion than that of Cam Valley ever becoming a mixed side is debatable, but a man can always dream.

    This approach is informal and represents my own view, along with one or two other members, as far as I know. It should not be interpreted as any kind of formal approach, though I’d gladly meet like-minded souls for a pint to discuss it.

    Foot up!
