Information

21st Sep. ’13

We are a Border Morris mixed Side . We practice most Mondays at the Spread Eagle in Lymm WA13 0AG , starting about 8:15pm with a pint in the upstairs function room.
In the past, Bollin have practiced in the Methodist hall on Eagle Brow
and the Church hall near the library.

We can always accommodate guests who would like to “come and try it”. We dance out a lot in the Summer (Winter usually no problem), so If you want to check us out , contact Ian or Bob on the “USEFUL LINKS” page to be sure we are there on the night you want to come.
It’s great fun — have a go with no commitment!

History

Bollin started sometime in the early 1970's, and was a revival of the original Altrincham side, one member of which was still around at this time. -- I must go round to Fred's (Bollin Historian) some time to sort this out! As far as I know, none of the current members are original, though some date from the early 1980's.

The more recent history is illustrated in the PHOTO SELECTION tab with the occasional 'blast from the past'. A picture tells >= 1000 words - enuff said!
Questions like 'where did the morris come from?' in invite replies like Altrincham or rambling dissertations about pre-Roman tin mining/King Arthur/Glastonbury thorns/ Willian Kemp and other things like that. The more Beer you buy us, the longer this will go on :)
I'm not sure meself WHY morris sides are , but it SEEMS sort of sensible, so that will do I guess..
