About The Magazine

The parish magazine is published and copyright by the Parochial Church Council of the parish of Whitchurch with Tufton and Litchfield, Hampshire, England.


Editors: Catherine Geddes, Louise Bates, Sarah Owen, Simon Coomber, Tim Bilson, Tim Cromarty and Gill Knappett.  Correspondence and news copy should be sent by email to  this address, or posted to The Parish Magazine, c/o The Old Paper Shop, 5 Winchester Street, Whitchurch, Hampshire RG28 7AH.  Deadline for news copy is the middle of the month before the month of publication.

Sample Issue

We have created an on-line version of the September 2016 magazine to illustrate a typical magazine.

Please read it. We hope you enjoy it.

Please see below to subscribe to the printed monthly magazine.


950 copies of the magazine are printed each month for 12 months of the year. The majority of these magazines are hand-delivered to households in the Whitchurch, Tufton and Litchfield area. You can also purchase the magazine from the Old Paper Shop in Whitchurch town centre.

The advertising year for the magazine runs from April to March.

To keep costs down, adverts are printed for the whole year in April, so no changes can be made to adverts during the year.

The advert pages are printed in colour and are interleaved with the news pages of the magazine.

The cost for 1/4 page of advertising for the 2016/2017 year was £150. We offer advert spaces from 1/8 of an A5 page up to one whole page, with the price being pro-rated according to size. We increase our prices each year in line with the increase in our printing costs.

If you would like to place a yearly advert then please email Leanne Coomber or on 01256 893615 and ask to join our waiting list. We email those businesses on our waiting list in January each year and offer them any available spaces on a first-come first-served basis (based on receipt of payment and your advert).

We can also offer one-off adverts that appear on our news pages if we are having a quiet news month. These are printed in black and white and are around 1/4 of an A5 page in size. As these create additional work for our editors, we charge £50 for a one-off advert or £120 for three months. As these will only appear when we have a low news month, we cannot guarantee when your advert will appear but are happy to take requests if you are advertising for a particular event. If you are interested in a one-off advert, again, please email Leanne or on 01256 893615.
