up and coming events
The next Stickney History Exhibition will take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017. Doors will open at 10am, and close at 6pm on both days. It will be held in the village hall in Stickney. Admission is free, however there will be the opportunity to make donations, which will go to local charities.
Light, homemade refreshments will also be available.

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.
