A book and DVD have been released to record the success of a First World War exhibition in the Deepings.

A launch for The Deepings Remember 1914 to 1918, about the war’s impact on Deeping Gate, Deeping St James, Market Deeping and West Deeping, was held at the Deepings Community Centre.

One visitor was Nicola Allen from Australia whose great uncle William Newborn Plowright of Deeping St James was a stretcher bearer who died in 1917.

Nicola said: “I’m really thrilled to be here and it’s brilliant to find out exactly what my great uncle went through.”

The book and DVD launch followed an exhibition across the Deepings last November to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. Judy Stevens of the Deepings First World War Commemoration Group said: “The whole project could not have taken place without the fantastic support we had from the whole community.”
