It is with much sadness that we have to report the passing of Chris Davey. He had been unwell for many years but being such a strong character, on each occasion he managed to pull through to fight another day.

Chris was an amazing musician and played melodeon with our band on a number of occasions. My lasting memory of him would be at the Chippenham Festival one early morning on the campsite, playing this extremely old and battered musical organ, absolutely oblivious to all around him!

His wife Pip (lady Pip as we called her, due to having two "Pip"s in the group!!) was a crucial founder member of Kettle Bridge Clogs. She was with us from the day Sandy and I decided to set up our new team. Very reliable member and dearly missed when she had to step down.

Our thoughts go out to Pip and her daughters at this very sad time.

The end of an era

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that, after 35 years of dancing, Kettle Bridge Clogs hung up their clogs at the end of the 2019 season.

We have had a wonderful time bringing North West morris to the Kent public (and further afield), and have enjoyed making new friends along the way. But all good things must come to an end.

A big "thank you" goes to all the dancers, musicians and supporters who have helped keep us going over the years. We all have such special memories of our time with Kettle Bridge Clogs.

Very best wishes for the future to you all.

It has been a few years since we last participated but we are looking forward to taking part for probably the last time.
