More than 100 villagers turned out for the launch of a local history book.

The North Marston Story, published by the North Marston History Club, was launched at St Mary’s Church last Saturday.

Club secretary, Sue Chaplin, who compiled and edited the book with club chairman John Spargo, said: “We had expected about 30 people but to our great surprise over100 people came to the launch.

“Some bought three or four copies of the book to give to family and friends.”

The book was formally launched by North Marston resident Trevor Lane, who was recently awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

The editorial committee were also delighted to see villager Ivy Wheeler, who was born in there in 1910.

The North Marston Story is now on sale at Buckingham’s Old Gaol Bookshop, the University of Buckingham Bookshop in Hunter Street and North Marston Village Shop.
