Greenwich Chair-lifting

If you are on the Thames Path at Greenwich this Easter Monday you might see traditional chair-lifting at lunchtime.

The Church Times reminds us that the Blackheath Morris Men have been maintaining this Midlands Easter custom next to the Cutty Sark for the last twenty years.

Girls are invited to sit in a decorated chair and be lifted up in the air in return for a kiss.

The flower covered chair will be brought out at about 12.30pm.
