Bill Farmer, who plays music for the dancers, said: “We support local events whenever possible, like the Manor Cottage open day and the Adur Festival.

“We are a small side and often perform with other local morris sides. We don’t take our dancing too seriously, we’re there to enjoy ourselves as well as providing street entertainment for others.

“We are always looking for more members. If you are interested in trying out morris dancing, come and see us at one of our stands or contact us via our website. It’s more fun and cheaper than the gym.”
