New Book


Alan Draper will be publishing a new book about the Somersham Pageant in April.

The pageant was one of the most significant events that took place in the village in the 20th century.  Alan has carried out extensive research into the event and the book gives full details of the pageant and includes over 30 photographs that were taken at the time.  It has information about the history of Somersham on which the pageant was based.  Much of this has been gleaned from the old church parish magazines which have been hidden away in a chest for many years.

The book will cost £7.50 and all of the profits will be given to St John’s Church and will go towards the cost of the new heating system that will hopefully be installed this summer.


There will be limited print run, if you want to reserve a copy please speak to Alan or Jean.
