Man dressed as a tree parades through London for May Day

A man dressed as a giant tree with garlands of leaves and flowers took to the streets of Deptford and Greenwich as part of the May Day celebrations.

Deptford's Fowler's Troop lead their annual parade through South East London today with their Jack in the Green procession.

The Fowlers Troop Jack in the Green was revived by members of Blackheath Morris Men and friends in the early 1980s. It is a revival of a Jack in the Green from about 1906 which was taken out around Deptford on May Day by the original Fowlers Troop.
