October 4th 2015

British Car Council Toy Run

It may have been threatening a cold rain in the morning, but that chilly morning moved its way to a beautiful fall afternoon.

Brave souls in their sports cars came that morning, with tops, tonneaus, and, some, fully open to the world. With them, saloon owners came to the Country Heritage Park in Milton for a great day full of cars, dance, cars, lunch, music, cars, and generosity.

We gathered together, late in the driving season to bring joy to kids. Some may need a bit more this Christmas, and with our help they will with the toys and contributions made to the Salvation Army Christmas drive.

Enjoy the pictures!

Ok, now that the Tour is coming back in the Orangepeel Morris started up again.

What is Morris Dancing, you ask?

According to the Orange Peel Morris Website,

Morris is an old English folk dance performance form that includes several types of dance from various regions: Cotswold, Northwest, Border, Molly, Longsword, Rapper, and Clog.

We do Border Morris originally from the English border counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and Shropshire, adding in our own inventions, plus those we have gleaned from others. High spirits and high energy - "a rude vigour" - typify our Border Morris dancing.

We create lots of interest when we dance at local events and festivals. We also sing and play traditional English music, including old Christmas carols mainly from the South Yorkshire area; and we perform traditional English mummering plays. Mostly, we have a lot of fun together!
