Dancing in the streets

Leamington Editorial 25th Jan, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THEY were dancing in the streets in Long Itchington at the weekend.

Warwick-based Plum Jerkum Border Morris were joined by friends from Alvechurch, Anstey and Royal Oak for a wassail around the village on Saturday (January 23).

Fun it may have been for all concerned, but it also had a serious purpose – to ensure a good crop in the coming year for local farmers.

They danced their way round the village pubs, enjoying a little refreshment along the way.

Formed in 1986, Plum Jerkum are Warwick’s very own mixed Border Morris side.

They practice every Monday evening in Northgate Methodist Church Hall.
