The Nunnington News

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
