The Council ran a series of essay competitions in the early 1960s in collaboration with various local publications to capture the memories of eldery residents of Nottinghamshire villages and certain towns. All the entries were deposited in the Nottinghamshire Archives. A couple of dozen of the essays mention Plough Monday, folk plays and other folklore topics.
