Notes on phone call to Rev. Bernard Hill, The Vicarage, Thurgarton. He read out bits of text of the Oxton play that Mr Steemson had given him, which were esentially the same as in TD00635. Characters were The Man in Charge, Tom Fool, Eezum Squeezum, Farmer's Man, Doctor. He remembered Plough Monday being celebrated in Norwell in the early to mid 1920's when men went round and collected money to spend in the pub.
