1935 News coverage concerning Huthwaite

Indexed by every relevant weekly edition found, this is an entire years coverage of archived Huthwaite news from the Nottinghamshire Free Press 1935 publications. Helping detail Huthwaite developments and past social life, I've also included announcements of resident marriages and deaths, informatively revealing named relations which will hopefully assist readers through their own genealogy research.

Searching through Sutton Library archives for subjective headed columns may have missed a few items, and transcribing may edit out lengthier or less relevant matters. Nevertheless, all coverage is given containing full relevant details, retaining original older style punctuation and possible spelling variations.

Notts Free Press 1935

The most influential concern for Huthwaite this year was abolition of its own Urban District Council. From April 1st it became one of the amalgamated Wards within an enlarged Sutton Urban District Council.   But the Huthwaite councillors had proved their success at organising an annual carnival, while the Free Press offices were able to reflect back upon the changes they witnessed after fifty years of publication.
