Report of the Plough Sunday service at Newark Parish Church, Notts. There was a civic procession from the Town Hall to the church, with a plough carried by members of Young Farmers' Clubs. The plough was blessed by the Bishop of Southwell. The sermon, by the Vicar of Mansfield, spoke of the dignity of work, and the plough as the symbol of civilisation.
