Dancing in the street Morris Men kick off new season

MOSSLEY Morris Men put their best feet forward on Easter Monday to launch their new season in style.

Prospects for the group looked bleak 12 months ago due to dwindling numbers.

But bolstered by an influx of new members -including former Mayor of Mossley Cllr Greg Brett – and a change of dancing garb to smart waistcoats and flat caps, the Morris Men – and a couple of ladies – are optimistic of a bright future.

They turned out in force to start their Spring tour at the Junction Inn on Mossley Road.

Appearances followed at the Hare and Hounds, The Fleece, The Blazing Rag, the Church Inn and the New Bridge Inn.
