States; "A group of actors - the Owd Oss Mummers group - are bringing a touch of times past to Cropwell Bishop and Cropwell Butler.

In olden days farm labourers in Nottinghamshire used to tour local farm houses performing short plays in return for money and refreshments.

The group, which specialises in performing folk plays, has researched the custom in the Cropwell Bishop area and returned there last night to reconstruct a 15-minute version of the play. Today, Plough Monday, two more local public houses are being visited."
