The Village News Magazine

The first issue of the Village News appeared in January 1979. In those days it was a parish magazine for the three villages of Kirtlington, Weston-on-the-Green and Bletchingdon. As the populations grew and the production task became unmanageable, each village’s magazine became an independent operation.Looking through the archive, we see the first time our magazine was published under the name of Kirtlington Village News was Issue 66 for December 89 / January 90. In May 2012 Kirtlington Village News celebrated its 200th edition and continues to keep readers in touch with what is going on in the village.

The Village News is published six times a year and is a forum for all villagers.  Tell us your news and views. We’d love to hear from you.

Opinions or views expressed may not concur with those of the Editorial Team.

Editorial Team:  Jane Moore, Jan Shackleton, with Hilary McPhee.
