Iportant Notice - Practices and Performances Suspended

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the following:

Due to the problems presented by Covid-19, Morris practices are suspended until further notice.

Morris Dancing For All

The Shropshire Bedlams and Martha Rhoden’s Tuppenny Dish would like to make it clear that they are proud to be inclusive organisations.

Membership is, and always will be, open to all. 

Furthermore, we are proactive in standing against all forms of discrimination, both in the Morris world and in all sectors of our society

We want people from all backgrounds to enjoy our dancing and not be made to feel unwelcome or uncomfortable by any element of a performance or our community.

We deplore the use of images of our two sides, or mention of us, that are in any way connected with organisations or publications which use and condone discriminatory language and behaviour.

We will be looking for new members !

Oswestry Square

When the current crisis caused by Covid-19 eases and prectices can resume safely, we will be looking forward to recruiting new members.

If you are over 12 years of age, fairly fit and with a reasonable sense of rhythm, why not give Border Morris a go.

To find out more contact the secretaries using the form on the 'Getting In Touch' page of this website.
