I was born in Market Deeping and have lived here all my life with my son and my partner.

For nearly fifty of those years I have worked as a hairdresser so there are not many people in The Deepings I don't know.

I joined The Deepings Rotary Club in 2002 and have held various offices, initiating  many projects. 

I have had the honour to serve as president and am still a very active member.

Through my connection with the Rotary Club I joined Inner Wheel of The Deepings Club in 2015 and am looking forward to my year as president.

About The Deepings

Packhorse Bridge - Deeping Gate

The  Deepings are a series of settlements in the South of Lincolnshire.The adjoining villages and towns are in the Lincolnshire Fens near the river Welland, some eight miles North of Peterborough and ten miles East of Stamford. The area is just North of the Peterborough border. The Deepings include: Deeping St James, Deeping St Nicholas, Market Deeping, West Deeping, Frognall, Stowgate, Hop Pole and Tongue End all within the various civil parishes.

Another village that is included in The Deepings is Deeping Gate, a small hamlet across the River Welland in Cambridgeshire.

The Deepings area is very low lying and gave The Deepings their name, a Saxon name translated as either "deep places or deep lands". The villages are mentioned in the Doomsday book. Deeping Fen lies to the North, and the drainage of it  was an important part of the seventeenth century land reclaimation and is now the responsibility of The Welland and Deeping Internal Drainage Board.

Last Meeting

We had fun and games with the Roatarians on our games night get-together with The Deepings Rotary Club, it was a huge success.

Several games were played, among them Connect Four, Bag-o-tell, Bar Skittles, Shut the Box, Build a House (never heard of that one, I understand it’s a bit like Beetle) and last but not least Jenga.

The evening was a great success. President Jill said the final score was a draw, I expect she was telling fibs so we are not really sure who won but I suspect  that it was the Rotary Club.

The Roatrians enjoyed themselves as much as we did and have given us a date for a return match.          Barbara
