Morris Fed AGM 2014 - the aftermath

It was a fabulous weekend. So much music and dance and colour and laughter and fun, filling the streets of Keswick! The locals and visitors seemed to enjoy our presence as much we as we enjoyed taking part, and we even managed to arrange for the rain to stay off.

Photos are turning up from cameras all over the place. Some of these are gradually being uploaded to our Flickr photostream, which you can see by clicking here.

We'd love to include your photos and videos too! If you've uploaded them somewhere  please send us a link. Alternatively, just let me know if you'd like some of your pics on our Flickr site with full acknowledgement of photographer and copyright - Click to email Ally

I'd love to think that everyone who took part can be seen somewhere, in at least one of the photos from the weekend.


We've had so many complementary comments from sides taking part that I thought it would be nice to put them here.

  • It was great to be part of the weekend and to see so many other teams. Can I send a personal thanks for the superb organisation, from the info sent out prior to the weekend and the packs we got on arrival to the very complicated business of making sure we all danced with different teams at each spot, which can't have been an easy task.

  • I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful day of dancing you organised for us all last Saturday.  All the members of Leap To Your Feet and Soya Band had a brilliant day. It was so well organised and the refreshments were much appreciated.  Your stewards ensured we all knew where we were going and what we had to do.  it all made for a very relaxed day of dancing and in such a beautiful setting!!

  • Winkleigh Morris would like to thank both you and all members of Belfagan Morris for such a superb weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially dancing with so many different sides. Well done with the organisation, it obviously took a great deal of thought and forward planning.

  • I think we should be thanking you! It was a lovely day and all so well organised.

  • ... a very big THANK YOU to you and the Belfagan team for organising such a fine event in Keswick on Saturday, and even arranging for the weather to stay dry throughout! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the timetabling seemed to work like clockwork, the refreshments were ample and delicious and our young dancers, especially, had a great time! Among others things, they were fascinated to see so many different types of dancing and enjoyed watching their various moves.
