The first edition of The Parish News was published in May 1996. The publication went from an A5 format for the first 6 issues to A4, all of course in single colour.
It was not until issue 25 in the Autumn of 2005 that colour made an appearance and then only a few pages. Issue 38 in the Winter of 2008 was the first to appear in full colour. Number 39 was the last ‘Parish News’, the name changing to ‘Community News’ in Summer 2009 with issue 40.
We are indebted to Mr David White of Shenley Brook End, a past Clerk to the Council, for the loan of originals of early editions of Parish News up to issue 19 from which we have been able to complete our digitised archive.
