Unfortunately this group is no longer running but who were they and what did they do?

Formed in Aynho in 1987 this was a ladies Morris side dancing traditional English dances from the Cotswolds and Welsh borders.  The name derives from the local tradition of growing apricots up the cottage walls.  They performed both stick and hanky dances as well as singing the odd song or two. On May Day they also performed a traditional longsword dance.  The circle of swords created at the end of the dance represented the unbroken cycle of life, death and rebirth and was presented to the newly crowned May Queen.
Maybe someone will start the group again one day!
