Westminster Morris Dancers are sad to report that Mike died on Saturday, 4th March. He was 78 and had been on purely palliative care for his various cancers for some months. He had a peaceful death in a very civilised nursing home.
He will be remembered for his many years at Westminster MM, more recently with Martlet MM and in the dim and distant with Winchester MM. In the wider folk world, he did a stint as Hon Treasurer of the EFDSS and in the 70s and 80s directed both London Folk and the Albert Hall festivals. He was also in the RSCDS London demonstration team. Quite a CV!
Mike was adamant that there should be no funeral or commemorative event. Those who knew him are asked to find an appropriate time to raise a glass in his memory.
Next Wednesday, 11th January, why not make your way over to Tyburnia (that’s the small area between Bayswater Road and Edgware Road, if you are wondering) for an evening of dancing with Westminster Morris Dancers. Any questions? Send us a message.
