MORRIS dancers are looking to recruit amid rumours their traditional dance is dying out.

Greenwich Morris Men have organised a taster evening on October 8, where visitors watch and try dancing.

The group is learning a new repertoire and training recruits in time for May 1.

The group do traditional Morris dancing from the Cotswold area to the accompaniment of concertinas, melodeons and accordions.

Musicians are also welcome.

Bagman Ged Balmer said: "We feel it is important that we keep our traditions alive. Taking part in this old custom is probably one of the easiest ways of doing that."

Visits can also be made on any Thursday, from 8 to 10pm, at Vanbrugh Community Centre, Mycenae Road, Blackheath.
