It’s all white, the Hoxon Hundred came to entertain





A flamboyant display of morris dancing caught the eye as a group entertained passers-by in Harleston last week.

The Market Place came alive with music and dancing as members of the Hoxon Hundred, wearing bells on their legs and waiving hankies, gave a rousing display to celebrate May Day – a popular event in the morris calendar.

Among the small group of dancers was Jane Pearse, 71, from Brome.

“It’s a really social activity, where you get to work as a group, improve your fitness and keep active,” she said.

“We’re learning new dances all the time and are always welcoming of new members.

“There’s always lots of interest from people when we are out dancing and we always encourage that as it helps bring in new members.”
