Anton's Ultra-Marathon Challenge in Memory of Long-Serving Society Life Member Richard Esam

Many members of the Society will remember with respect and affection the late Richard Esam of Criftin Farm, Epperstone who died last summer.  Richard was a long-serving supporter of the Southwell Ploughing Match & Show and was made a Life Member in 2018. 

His son-in-law Anton Richards is walking a gruelling 100km (63 miles) in 24 hours across the Peak District to raise funds for Parkinsons UK in his memory.  This fundraising is certainly not a stroll in the National Park - it's an exhausting physical and mental challenge for which Anton's putting in miles of training.

If anyone would like to donate in memory of Richard, his Just Giving Page can be accessed here: Anton Richards is fundraising for Parkinson’s UK (
