Britain’s first mixed male and female Morris dancers – Hemlock Morris – made a special appearance at Stondon Lower School’s May Day celebrations. Little learners were enchanted by the troupe’s Border-style costumes and watched mesmerised as they completed four traditional dances. The day had begun on a tasty note as members of the PTA sold freshly prepared bacon butties.
Then parents and offspring gathered to watch a display of Maypole dancing from a group of children from Years 3 and 4.
Hemlock Morrris are based in Bedford and had come on to the school from a performance in Ampthill.
Stondon Lower School’s motto is Every chance, every child, every day and their value for May is patience.
