Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
As Someone on the Daily Mail article mentioned...Come to Straw Bear. Witness with your own eyes that more and more young people are becoming interested and are already dancing. I have been with my side 16 years. Im 18.
I guess when you are my age though and you are part of the folk/morris thing, you notice the other young people more than you would if you were not.
We have done so much to attract young people and twice have we had a very large influx of them in recent years. A majority of them have stayed.
A lot more young people are more open minded now too. And they will look to joining Morris Uni sides as a bit of exercise and then when they finish their courses go on to look at sides in their area.
Well im young. I love morris. Im in a Fed side.
