Whitstable (Oyster Morris) Jack-in-the-Green 2014

I am extremely pleased to be able to confirm that the Highworth, Oxford, Guildford and Ilfracombe Jacks have all been sighted this year along with a revival of the Cheltenham Sweeps Jack. Reports have also just come in that the Brentham Jack went out today. If you have pictures of any of the Jacks that went out this year please do consider sending a copy to me  at greenman@virgin.net so that I can add it to our free online Flickr photographic archive, all pictures are always copyrighted to the original photographer and will never be used without prior permission. My thanks to everyone who has put up with me and been so kind this year. Whitstable Oyster Morris and the wonderful Dixie Lee (pictured above with their Jack)  Dead Horse Morris, The Bristol Jack-in-the-Green and everyone who has sent me sightings and some wonderful pictures so far…please keep them coming! I will be uploading all the pictures I have taken and those sent in over the next few weeks so please keep checking back to the Flickr archive and this blog.

  • City of London Jack (last seen in Hastings in 2012)

Still to come:

  • A rumour that a Jack may parade in the Pagan Pride Parade this year……
