St Marychurch's "Party In The Precinct" - a Memory of St Marychurch.


I was really surprised at how busy and popular this community event was. I went along with my wife, Elizabeth, who is a dancer with the Heather and Gorse Clog Morris Dancers. The team had been invited to perform outside the Dolphin pub half way along St Marychurch precinct.

We were booked to dance at 3 o'clock and the organisers of the event were ready for us and "coned off" a square of pavement so the dancers had space. I took along my accordian and helped with the music up on the nearby stage. The dancers looked splendid in their blue and white kit plus shiney black clogs. We provided a medley of jigs and polka tunes for more than half an hour finishing up with an audience paprticipation dance which went down well with the watching crowds!

This was a really well organised event and I hope it will be repeated as it was fun.
