Morris Returns To Chipperfield In July

2nd of July 2002

The sound of Morris bells (and perhaps even sticks on knuckles) returns to the village in July, when Greensleeves Morris Men host their annual weekend of dance. Morris clubs from Nottingham and Coventry will be joining Greensleeves on 12-14 July.

Friday 12 July sees the opening ceremony when Greensleeves dance by the tree on The Common commemorating their former Squire, Les Nichols, who lived in Chipperfield. Saturday 13 July sees the clubs out and about on tours around Hemel, Amersham and Chesham during the day, with dancing at The Boot, Tower Hill at 6.30pm.

Saturday 14 July is the big day in Chipperfield, with an open-air service at 10.30am in the car park, followed by a show by Greensleeves and the visiting Morris sides at about 11.00am. As in previous years, the Morris men will be providing tea and biscuits. Following a procession to The Windmill at 12 noon, the dancing continues into the afternoon. Just turn up and enjoy the shows.
