New look for January 2017 Parish Magazine.

The contents of the Hollingbourne Parish Magazine which includes church and village news have been changed with effect from January 2017. Jokes have now been included in the January issue which has come off the press today.

The Magazine no longer reports the Minutes of the Parish Council as the closing copy date for the Magazine has been changed to the 10th of each month which will be before the date of many monthly Parish Council meetings with the result that any Minutes will not appear to some some months after the reported meeting. Additionally most Minutes that have been published to date exceed the available space.

As from December the Minutes will continue to be published on this website as soon as they become available and the December 2016 Minutes were published on 19th December at Printed copies are available upon application to the Parish Clerk and they will continue to be supplied to the Kent Messenger, the Downs Mail, and other interested media outlets.
