News from the Villages is the Parish Magazine and covers all the Villages in our area
Namely, Burghclere Newtown, Ecchinswell, Bishops Green, Sydmonton and Old Burghclere.
 
 
 It is delivered to 640 households by volunteers
 
It is published 11 times a year, and with a fair wind, should arrive on your doormat on the first of the month, excluding August.  In it, you can find all sorts of infomation, from diary dates  of jumble sales, concerts, meetings and other events, to reports of the goings on at Parish Council meetings in the villages and of organisations like th WI and local schools.  There is also the Noticeboard with, for example, Karate classes, or a lost cat, keys found or personal messages.
 
 
 
In the middle of the magazine is a list of the church services taking place in the three parish churches, and in side the front cover is a list of telephone numbers of people and organizations round the parish. Towards the back is a section called trading post where you might read about a babysitter, or someone wanting to find a gardener. If you need something, or want to sell something, you can let the editor know and put in your own (free) ad.There is also a wealth of commercial advertising, so you can leaf through and find the number of your local cab firm, builders, MP, the pub, shrub nursery, milkman, joiner or toddler group.
 
 
 
There are lots of other bits and pieces in the magazine: Nature Notebook, Gardening Notes, local history and, sometimes,a seasonal recipe. What you see in the magazine depends largely on what is happening and who has sent something in  contributions and suggestions are very welcome. Ideally, please contact the editor, or send in contributions by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

It is much better if copy is sent electronically as that minimises the chance for errors to creep in.  You can also telephone Susan on: 278 295 if you would like to discuss a contribution or to receive "News from the Villages".
