An early start for Mayor, Cllr Annie Brewster, found her joining St Albans Morris Men to celebrate the dawn of May Day with traditional folk music and dancing.

The festivities kicked off just after sunrise at 6am last Thursday, May 1, outside the Old Town Hall.

Cllr Brewster welcomed the arrival of summer by putting her dancing skills to the test alongside the dancers.

She said: “It is a very long standing tradition for St Albans Morris dancers to dance on May Day. I am very grateful to the dancers for letting me take part as they welcomed the start of summer. I join them in wishing everyone in the district a very happy and prosperous summer.”

Andrew Torrington, secretary of St Albans Morris Men, added: “Dancing in the city centre on May Day is a great way to start the summer. We are grateful to the Mayor for coming along and it is wonderful that she came appropriately dressed in white which matched our white shirts and trousers. We always welcome new dancers, with or without experience, so please get in touch if you want to find out more. We are on the web.”
