Faces of The Village

Ian Hollands, editor of the St Mary & St Peter (Langham & Boxted) Newsletter.

The newsletter was started in April 1996 as a service by the Church to the two villages and Ian has edited it for the last fifteen years. Ian is now giving up his role and everyone hopes that someone else will come forward to take it on. Working to a strict deadline is necessary, for the Newsletter has to be at the printers by the Sunday before the last weekend of the month. The Newsletter, which is delivered by volunteers to every house in Langham and Boxted, is much valued by residents, particularly those who have no access to the internet.

If you think you may be interested and would like to learn more of what is involved with producing this newsletter please contact Ian for a chat on 01206 230525 or email him at ianhollands@supanet.com
