Other friends who have passed on
: Ivor Reed 1999-2013 Darren Marfleet 2010-2013
Ted Kent 1998-2013
Ted joined in 1998 having previously danced North West Clog with Earlsdon Morris in Coventry. He enjoyed being part of the team, but felt that he was too old to start learning Cotswold Morris. Instead he became a much valued collector! He also played melodeon (pictured on the Trigg Postcard in 2001)
Ted received a special honour in 2021 of a place on the Banner for the Saddleworth Rushcart. Simon Newman of Earlsdon Morris is the current Squire of the Morris Ring and he gave Ted a special mention.
Robbie Robins 1923-2015
Robert Robins, who died on 23rd February 2015, aged 91 can make the rare claim of having been an active member of six Morris Clubs.His interest in the Morris began, as a member of the Cambridge Morris Men. He became a House Surgeon at Bart’s, London and by 1948 had joined his second club, Beaux of London City; Robert moved north in the early 50s became an early member of Newcastle Kingsmen,
Robert was appointed at Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford which put him within striking distance of Headington Quarry Morris Men, then a team of mostly young lads (Kimber’s Boys). Robert was to teach the lads the Rapper that he had learnt in Newcastle . Robert’s next move was to Exeter where he was to join his fifth team, Exeter Morris Men.
In 1961 Robert moved to the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Truro. – you can go no further than Cornwall. But to his good fortune his sixth and final team was awaiting him, Trigg Morris. He was to become a valued member. In 1965 he retired from Trigg but remained good friends with the team – who were proud to dance at his funeral (with Headington Quarry members in the congregation).
