"Quintessentially English" [1]

Our name is taken from the small Victorian suburb of Spring Grove in Kingston-upon-Thames where we practise; it lies just south of Kingston Old Town and across the Hogsmill River.

Sun Up on May, Day Box
1st May

The start of the dancing year as the sun comes up on Box Hill.  We gathered in the National Trust car park as 5 o'clock and processed to the road above Salomonds Monument.  There we took turns to dance until 6:30, with Spring Grove dancing Fieldtown - Balance the Straw led by our Squire David Seager.  This was Spring Grove's 41st time dancing on Box Hill as the sun came up.  The group photo was taken and we retired to the Wheatsheaf in Ewell for a magnificent full English breakfast.

Present were:
and we were honoured by the presence of Mick Jenkins, Squire of Thames Valley Morris Men of Claygate
