Graham Taylor's Birthday in Winchester
24 April 2004
Graham Taylor - stalwart of many local morris teams, and dance organiser of the Winchester Folk Festival - invited us to his 60th birthday celebrations in Winchester and Romsey.
The sun shone and we had a superb day.
The other dance teams were Hook Eagles, Morena, Ridgeway Stepclog, Boghoppers&Bushbeaters, White Rats, and Fleet.
Present on the day were: Abi, Anne, Chris, Colin, Dave K, Doug, Ian O, Jenny, Mike G, Mike S, Nikki, Pam, Susie and Tiffany
Members of OBJ, Hook Eagles, Boghoppers&Bushbeaters look on attentively whilst another side performs
dancing White Ladies Aston.

This caught the moment when the hula-hula sway started whilst Hook were dancing something-or-other to "Yellow Bird". This quickly spread to the whole audience. One of the day's great moments.
