Mayday in East Sussex and Kent etc.

I wasn't working on Mayday, so we were up before dawn to watch Shalesbrook Morris  (above) and Ashdown Forest Morris Men dancing in Ashdown Forest.

Yes, you probably can see members of the audience wrapped up in blankets!  The sunrise wasn't that spectacular and it was rather chilly.  The sun is somewhere in this photo.

It had got a bit warmer by 7.30, when Ashdown danced the Boosebeck sword dance at the Hatch Inn.

In the evening, we went to the Kettle Bridge to watch Kettle Bridge Clogs dance.  Glyn got recruited into a public dance at the end.  He'll have to work harder at the right team colours.

Happy (belated) Mayday!  Glyn also tried the waters at the Pantiles, Tunbridge Wells - but the beer tastes better!
