Entry to an essay competition on old village life at Bunny, Notts. Page 6
includes the following;
"A few men and boys used to come to the door on Plough Monday in the evening
dressed up in smocks, and old hats stuffed with straw. They sung a song or two
and were given a little money, a glass of home made wine, and a pasty or two. A
pasty is a turn over pastry, not one of the little dainty tarts and pastries of
Bunny, Notts. (SK5829)
