GALLERY: Rain doesn’t stop Worthing May Day dance

MORRIS dancers celebrated the coming of summer despite the rain pouring down around them.

A total of 36 members of Sompting Village Morris took part in its traditional May Day dance through Worthing on Tuesday, starting at Splash Point and finishing in Liverpool Gardens, where the May Queen was crowned by mayor Ann Barlow.

Morris man Martin Frost said: “We have been celebrating May Day for every year of its 30-year existence, and in Worthing for the last 10.

“We have never been rained off and this year’s light drizzle proved no exception to that tradition.”
