Following the launch of The Deepings Remember 1914 to 1918, commemorating an exhibition last November and incorporating the Deepings Roll of Honour, stocks of this limited-edition book have gone down fast.

Relatives of some of the Deepings people who served in the First World War, along with local organisations, schools, churches and others who contributed to the project were invited to the launch at the Deepings Community Centre to receive their copy of the book.  The room was packed, but press photographers captured the event for the Stamford Mercury (Friday 5th June page 6) and the Lincolnshire Free Press (Tuesday 2nd June page 10).

Copies of the book are available for sale at £10 from Deeping St James Post Office and the Community Centre in Douglas Road, Market Deeping. An accompanying DVD costs £1.
