Morris Dancers - Take Your Bells and Mock Confrontation Elsewhere

I WOULD like to send a message to the Morris Dancers who danced in Ely last weekend. Please consider the mental wellbeing of shop assistants in Market Street when you return to Ely next year. I can assure you that there are few things more irritating than hearing you slap your thighs, jangle your bells and shout at one another in mock confrontation for three hours. It might be a pleasant form of entertainment for those passing through Ely while shopping, but the employees cannot simply walk away when the noise becomes too much (the longest most can tolerate is about three minutes). Perhaps next year you could use the green in front of the cathedral, which was vacant nearly all day?
