Hook Eagle Morris Men

Saturday July 2nd, from 10am
(Also Sunday; we're on from 12:30pm on the Saturday.)
Their 61st Anniversay has a RIO theme. Hence the Chinese Dragons???
I've been asked mention this, with no indication of what it is.
I quickly discounted Tyne & Wear Property Services - their support for Hampshire-based Morris dancing is very patchy. Perhaps we did something to upset them?
I spent a little longer on Transfield Worley Power Services - well, Pilgrim Morris have a good rapport with the Antipodes. Where did you think they got their “South Australia” dance from? Oxfordshire???
(They had Tim transported to the colonies for a few years, a practice we could adopt. I've already got some names . . .)
Then I noticed that Google had dropped the 'H' in their keenness to search, and decided on The Hartley Wintney Preservation Society - not quite as far-flung from Hook, but it's my best guess.
[ Trell - did Tubbs do right? ].
The Andwells Brewery
In honour of the Queen's 90th Birthday, Andwells have created two new beers: Sovereign, and Sovereign 9.0.
A Word from Our Founder:
“Well, what can I say other than express my delight that you have survived and will soon enter into Folk History? Bless you all!”
Stuart J. Foster - a proper vicar!
Well, we did make the Oxford Mail.
More importantly the Fleet News & Mail.
And the Day of Dance went well - here's a
Hook Eagle 2016 Events Programme

This site recommended in the Winter 1996 Edition of
the Morris Federation Newsletter
but nobody has said a good word since.
Hook Eagle Morris are members of the Morris Federation for reasons that have been lost in the oral tradition.
