Huath Pencawr ( Hughie Green to his chums ) is being completely rebuilt. Apparently some of Rag Morris took him on a tour in Bohemia last year; yes, that's somewhere in western Czechslovakia. It seems that he became a little worse for wear and retired on the spot; morris dancers do become a little worse for wear occasionally we hear. Last seen he was resting on a tree-stump in a Bohemian forest glade.

Before he left Bristol Hughie must have dropped a seed or something, 'cos Mark Vyvyan-Jones tells us that he'll be reborn this spring in time for Rag Morris' May-Day festivities om May 8th.
