From Martin Jones, 12th March 2019:

My most vivid memory of Mike Edwards was when he brought Sedgley Morris Men to the paved area outside All Saints', to dance at Her Majesty the Queen's 'EIIR 90' festival at the church in June 2016. 

His enthusiastic leadership and participation in the Morris Men's dances was a shining example to everyone of how it's possible to keep oneself fit and active in retirement. 

He was also very active in arranging and dancing at the village's May Festival, when local children dance around the Maypole in Vicar Street Gardens. 

Overall they was a sense exuberant joyfulness in the Morris Men's performances, inspired by Mike, which delighted everyone who saw them.   

Mike also helped considerably by contributing to the Sedgley People's Archive we are building about life in the village. Having grown up here, his memories of Sedgley's High Street, Bull Ring and Dudley Street helped to enrich the profile and explain the histories of many local buildings. 

He was a calm, dignified and highly intelligent man, who is a great loss to the village.
