It’s official – it’s 10s all round with the Jerusalem Jammers

Yes, it’s true!  Market Harborough WI members scored 10s all round when they joined in the dancing with the Jerusalem Jammers.

tf the February monthly meeting last night, the Jerusalem Jammers, the only WI group in the country, entertained members with displays of their Morris dancing.  They were accompanied by their own small troupe of musicians.
This unique group has been running for 31 years and is based in Leicestershire.  The longest serving members have also been members for that length of time, joining at its inception in 1982.  They meet monthly to practise, as well as performing at many events around the county and country.  The group includes mother and daughter.
Many of the dances are now over 60 years’ old and originate from local villages, which is reflected in their names.   All dances performed were for female dancers, with the exception of the last one which was originally for men.  New dances are bought from the Morris Federation, of which the Jammers are members.

See you on Wednesday.
