MAYFLOWER MORRISMEN


The Essex town of Billericay is proud of its Morris side which was founded in 1973. The side wear distinctive black and white tabards with the Mayflower ship on their backs, symbolising the five local people who became known eventually as the Pilgrim Fathers who sailed to Massachusetts in 1620. We also have our own Town Crier, Jim Shrubb seen here with the MM who is always in fine voice. More pictures and further historical background can be found on the Essex County Council's web link here.
