The groups first book is released following an invitation by the Castle Rising Social Club to produce a booklet for them to use remaining funds left in their account after folding. The booklet would a way of distributing the remaining funds to the parish by giving a free copy to every household within Castle Rising.

After many hours of discussion and several chapters later it become apparent our proposed booklet would become a book. The group over several years has produced many researched topics, which we feel at some point needs publishing once completed. One of our problems is just as you feel you have reached a point in your research where you could draw a conclusion, along comes a juicy piece of information which you feel has to be included.
