Many residents and visitors have walked down Woodhall Lane, either to get to Scout Hut, their allotment or walk a dog. You'll probably have looked at Park House and wished you lived there!
Would you have chosen a different cover? What image from the book do you think would make a great cover? Why not let us know at our Talks, Tea and Cake event on May 27th from 2-5pm in Balsham? Join us for a cuppa and quiz the team on how to make a book - Berenice, our award-winning designer and 'book coach' will be there to answer your questions publishing a book. You can find out about maps from Dr. Seppe Cassettari and buy a copy of Balsham, a village story 1617 - 2017. The team would also love to hear memories from current and former residents. All are warmly welcome whether you are a resident or not.
We had two speakers at our book launch and here is one of the presentations.

One of the most important decisions is knowing what direction to take. Is the book printed, or epub? Maybe both? How to plan out the pages too. All big decisions that often have to be made before the book is written.
