Great Shefford Parish News

Great Shefford Parish News

The Great Shefford Parish News was published mid-month in every month for many years, and was available at the Village Shop and the Petrol Station for £1 a copy.  As an exception the mid December-mid January Christmas issue is distributed free, by courtesy of the Parish Council, to each household in the parish.  The Christmas 2021 edition has just been distributed.
We attempt to publicise all the events of the communities in the parish from the under-fives and infants to the over-sixties and all ages in between.  Among the most important are the resume of the Parish Council meeting each month.
We also carry articles on topics of general interest including literary subjects, bee-keeping, nature notes and local history.  Further afield we publicise, for example, meetings of the Valley Film Society based in East Garston.
We are always keen to welcome any new contributors with matters of interest to the village, or with subjects such as new pastimes, for example a recent article on taking up archery.
We do attract a strong list of advertisers, both local and from further afield for whom we can offer a readership of probably a large percentage of the parish and ,of course, all households at Christmas.
For contributions contact Richard Allen, the editor at or telephone 01488 648065.
