Goldhanger Parish Magazine

Someone is urgently needed to administrate the advertising for Goldhanger Magazine. The current person in this role is stepping down and the editors cannot commit to the role as they are volunteers themselves and prepare the magazine in their spare time. You do not have to live in the village.

For details please email

There has been a Parish Magazine since 1895 when the Revd. Frederick Gardner started it shortly after being appointed Rector at Goldhanger.

There have only been a few breaks in publication in all that time, most notably during both World Wars.

The magazine is now edited and published independently by volunteers, it only covers Goldhanger rather than Goldhanger and Little Totham as it used to, and it is free to all Goldhanger households (it cost one penny in 1919). We rely on advertising and donations to cover the cost.

You can also view the magazine online and save it to your computer, so you can view it later in glorious technicolour (see below).
