Our 40th Year


ESMMM – 40 years on and still going strong. We’re digging through the archives and plan to show a series of photographs covering the four decades that ESMMM have been in existence.

These pictures were both taken outside St. Mary’s Church, Ewell. The shot on the left is from 1981 and from left to right are Peter Collins, John Tucker, Alan Mead, Nigel Bird, Chris Pottinger, David Dance and fiddler Andy Perrin. Sadly, John and Chris have passed on. On the right, in 2019, are Peter Collins, Alan Mead, Alan Greenwood, Russell Dewhurst (Vicar of St Mary’s, Ewell), Ray Watson and Bob Hayward.
