A GROUP of morris men found an excellent way of losing excess pounds on Boxing Day by holding dances around the village of Holt

It's become a village tradition for Holt Morris men to stage dances starting at the top of the village by The Parks, by Firlawns retirement home, the village shop the Holt Superstore, on the village green and finishing at Tollgate Inn.

Spokesman Jonathan Nibbs said: "It's something we have done for many many years and has become a Holt tradition. We usually take in four or five dances. It's good fun and we usually finish at the pub and get a well deserved pint..

Holt not only have an all male dance side but the village is also home to a female side, the Belles Angels.
