Thanks to...
... my friends in Newark and at Newark Rugby Club for their sympathy and support after the death of my wife, Jan Whitelaw. Special thanks go to those who were able to attend Bramcote Crematorium for the celebration of her life.

She would have loved to have seen so many friends together.

EVENTS are taking place across Newark and district as the nation marks the centenary of the outbreak of the first world war. These events and the anniversary offer an opportunity to reflect on what was a momentous, terrible, period in history.

The recreation of the Sherwood Foresters’ muster and march to Radcliffe in Newark Market Place on August 10 will, for instance, be a poignant reminder of how troops set out filled with optimism and patriotic pride, only to encounter unimaginable horrors on the battlefields of France and Belgium.

The recreation sets off at 10am and is open to all.

Researchers and authors have recorded the stories of those from our towns and villages who went off to war, and those left behind on the Home Front, providing an insight into the devastating impact of the conflict.
