Recently we embarked on our traditional May Day tour accompanied by our sister side the Three Shires Ladies Clog & Garland Dancers. As this year is our 40th anniversary we decided to make this May Day a little bit more special. Massive thank yous go out to Harry, David G. and John L. for organising a wonderful day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The itinerary for the day along with a slideshow of some of the photos taken can be seen after the break. The day was rounded off with a wonderful Harthill Morris well dressing display and a birthday cake, photos of which you can see after the break as well, and a couple of presentations of engraved tankards made to outgoing officers Neil (Bagman) and Brian (Old Man).
Back on 23rd April Harthill Morris attended a day of dance held in York by the Joint Morris Organisation (JMO), a coming together of Morris Ring, Morris Federation and Open Morris sides. A fantastic time was had by all and you can see a slideshow of the photos we took after the break, or you can view them on our Flickr page.
We recently had new team photo’s taken – a huge thank you to David Poucher for making us look our best. You can view them after the break.
Every year the Harthill Carnival Society hosts the ‘Harthill Village Quiz’ which sees a number of 3-person teams fight it out in a battle of wits across 10 rounds of 10 questions each. This year, once the dust had settled and the smoke had cleared David G, John E. and Jono (competing as ‘Morris Men A’) stood tall as victors for the first time ever, bringing home the Harthill Carnival Society Village Quiz trophy (pictured).
We have published our programme for the 2016 season, which can be found on our Programme page. Keep checking back for any updates as we head into our 40th year.
2016 marks Harthill Morris’ 40th year. As well as a special Day of Dance which will be held on 17th September (we’ll let you know more details as they become available), keep an eye out for various celebrations taking place throughout the year as well as a dedicated micro-site for the anniversary coming soon!
Keep your eyes peeled if you’re in the Coal Aston, Dronfield and Holmesfield area on the evening of Saturday 19th December or in the Ridgeway, Ford, Eckington or Mosborough area at lunchtime on Sunday 20th of December, as the Harthill Tuppers ride again!
We’ve added a ‘Meet the Side’ page which can be found under the ‘About Us’ tab in the menu bar above (or you can click here). The new page contains a gallery featuring a role call of all our members for your viewing delectation. Enjoy!
Recently, Harthill Morris held their AGM and in the process elected new members into office within the club.
