An Exhibition of the History of Stickney has been organised to be held in the Village Hall on the 9th & 10th September 2023.

Baptisms, Burials & Marriages, records of Stickney and other local Churches and many newspaper cuttings from the village past.

previous events

Once again the Stickney History exhibition proved very popular. More than 350 people attended over the two day period. There were visitors from far and wide including an American couple who came from France, researching their family name of Stickney. Others travelled from Essex, Derbyshire and Nottingham as well as many local people.

From the feedback forms the general consensus was that everyone found the exhibition very interesting and many gained much information. The donations of £350 were given to Lincs and Nottingham Air Ambulance and the Stickney Village Hall committee.

Martin and Bev would like to thank all who came and supported their event.
