On the hunt for volunteers

Awsworth and Cossall History Society is looking for volunteers to help record details of graves and monuments at St Peter’s Churchyard.

The first stage of mapping the gravestones in the churchyard was undertaken by Nottinghamshire County Council’s archaeology department back in June.

The history society is now looking for people to help record specific detail, which will mainly involve ticking boxes on prepared forms.

The recording will take place the week beginning August 30.

The county council is trying to map all the graveyards in Nottinghamshire as the monuments are rapidly deteriorating due to age, weather and vandalism.

Anybody interested in helping should ring June Morley on 0115 849 7385.
