The Plough

Remembering World War One

During 2018, a group of villagers researched the lives of men from Averham, Kelham and Staythorpe, or closely associated with the villages through their studentship at the Society of the Sacred Mission (SSM), who lost their lives during World War One.

They were remembered at Services on 11th November 2018 through the dedication of new memorial plaques in the Churches and by tree planting. On 14th November, a celebration of these Heroes took place in the Robin Hood Theatre.
