We were very fortunate to find, on the back of an old postcard, a handwritten transcript of the song that was sung during the May day festivities in West Haddon around 1900. It was written for or by J T Page, one of the School Trustees and keen local historian.
Original postcard images of May day song and words
From this postcard we were able to teach our present class 5& 6 this May Day song. The children are accompanied by a fiddle and it is sung as it would have been sung nearly one Hundred years ago.
