Parish Magazines

Sign Up for Digital Magazine and Also Digital Consultation/Research

While we are committed to regular communication, we need to do so as cost effectively as possible in order not to waste money unnecessarily. We have therefore decided to issue the newsletters quarterly instead of every 6 months and hope to reduce the cost of distribution. We will continue to mail the Newsletter and also post it on parish notice boards and the Parish website. However, mail costs more and we would ask parishioners to consider receiving the Newsletter via email instead. This would save the PC money and ensure you get information on time.

We promise we will not bombard you with email, only the newsletter although we will give you the option of signing up to be contacted for your opinion on important issues e.g. speed limits and any large spending initiatives.

We will not provide your email address to any other party.
