For many years, Margaret Timbrell, the village's lay preacher, published a monthly newsletter, two sides of A4 typed out on an old-fashioned typewriter and roneoed by the staff at Nunnington Hall. However, as Margaret aged, she felt she couldn't continue with the newsletter and asked volunteers to take it over. Clang and Tracey duly answered the call and found it was a little bit more complicated than they had thought, whereupon I was asked to help. The new Nunnington News is the result.

By good fortune, we took over in February 2020, just before Covid, so we could use the Newsletter to inform our readers about the virus and the measures taken to control it.We aim to publish the News each month, although sometimes it's just the Diary page, and we aim to inform, educate and entertain the village and the many subscribers from beyond the parish boundary who read the News. As publisher and editor, I take the many contributions we receive through our online form, edit and set the items and usually write an article or two each month.

Nunnington News May 21

The weather in April dominated our May edition. Finally, however, the world is warming up at last, and Spring, hopefully, is on its way. And, for a small village, there is still a lot going on. Sadly, we also record the death of our most senior villager.

Our April edition of the News captured the spirit of Easter, Spring and renewal through a beautiful pastoral article and news and photos of newborn lambs.
