One of our Ex Team member's who moved away has recently written a book titled :- Three Men and a Rubber Chicken By John Furniss . The book outlines John's 18 years of fun and frolics with the Merrydowners, from learning the the ancient art of Morris Dancing and being part of a team that performed at a number of venues throughout the UK to dancing with the team in places such as Hong Kong, Germany and France etc. It has some amusing chapters, particularly when we managed to loose our rubber chicken on top of a burger bar (you will need to read the book to find out more ) . If you are interested, the book can be purchased via the Amazon book store priced £12.
