The Light Ships cover A

The next Light Ships event will be held this Saturday, 22 November, at Wrangle Church.

The main book launch, with a screening of a wonderful old film of Boston in 1943, will be at 3.00pm – but do come a bit earlier if you can, to see the exhibition and enjoy being in one of the Fenland’s loveliest churches. From 2.00pm there’ll be refreshments and an organ recital by Tony Fitt-Savage, who was organist at Sandringham for almost 40 years.

From today, The Light Ships is also available as a free download. It is a PDF file, which most computers can open with a programme like Acrobat Reader. It can be enlarged on screen for easier reading, or printed out. There are two versions: the low-resolution file takes less time to download, but the high-res file has better quality pictures. Click on the links below to save the file to your computer.

Copies of the printed books will be available on Saturday at Wrangle and the following Saturday, 29 November, at Gosberton, where the launch coincides with the church’s seasonal Christmas Tree Festival. From 1 December 2014, you can also buy copies for £5 plus postage from Transported:

  1. I was unable to be in Whaplode for the Book Launch, due to being in Scotland (visiting son who lives there), and I wonder if there is any chance of me having a copy? Unfortunately, I can’t get to Wrangle on Saturday, and I am in Norwich the next week (listening to a friend’s music being premiered by a local choir).

  2. Hello Valerie, I hope you had a good trip. Their is a book ready and waiting with your name on it. We will be sending out books to people who were part of the project and couldn’t make one of the celebration events after the Gosberton event and if you want any extra copies they will be available from the church or Transported for £5. Best Wishes, Lauren
