CYPRUS MORRIS was formed in 2008 as a result of a chance meeting of British ex-pats in Cyprus who had been involved in the morris in the UK, Cyprus Morris, with its green,white and gold kit reflecting the colours of the Cyprus flag, has become a familiar sight at fetes, festivals and other events across the island. In 2010 Cyprus Morris hosted a visit to Cyprus by Jockey Morris from Birmingham, UK, and in 2015 we had the pleasure of the company of Manchester Morris Men. In the summer of 2017 we were guests of Manchester Morris for a week, and represented Cyprus at the Buxton Festival.
We meet on Mondays at the village hall in Kyvides, a little to the north-west of Limassol. See the "Contact " page for directions. New members - dancers or musicians, experienced or raw beginners - are always welcome.
It is with great sorrow that we have to record the passing of David Griffin, who along with his wife Ann was one of the founder members of Cyprus Morris. David had been in a care home for a while, and finally was taken by Covid. He will be fondly remembered for his dry wit and his unfailing readiness to help in any capacity.
Sadly we have lost one of our longest-serving members, Bruce Diggle, in very unfortunate and unexpected circumstances. We will miss him very much, and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
