Morris Federation AGM Weekend, September 2001

Today we joined other member sides of the Morris Federation for the AGM weekend, based in Ewhurst, Surrey. Some 14 sides were present, and we split into three busloads. Minden Rose's group went to the White Hart at Stopham Bridge, Amberley Chalk Pits Industrial Museum and The Fox at Bucks Green, before joining all the sides at The Thurlow Arms, Baynards, for a massed stand.

Despite the threatening weather (and heavy rain as we set out) our tour at least stayed dry, and a great time was had by all. In fact, I was so busy photographing other sides I didn't get any of Minden Rose apart from the final clog set!

So here's a taste of the day - one shot of each of the sides present. (I hope I've got the right names with the right pictures - please let me know if not!)
