Have your say

We look back at the Lincs Free Press this week in 2000.

Pupils of Deepings School took to the stage with their parody on the story of Noah’s Ark.

Called Crimewave, the show featured a 40-strong cast and another 15 pupils helping out backstage.

Teacher Angela Brook explained: “The story features Noah and the other characters, but sees them come across problems with the local council estate.

“So they talk to God on the phone and he tells them they must build an ark!”
