A new book, which aims to give fresh insight into life in Long Melford during the First World War, is now available from the village library.

Long Melford Library manager Andrea Norman was presented a copy of Long Melford and the Great War – The Stories of a Thousand Lives on Friday, by its author, local historian David Gevaux, and Long Melford Heritage Centre founder John Nunn.
