Welcome to the Five Villages Chronicle.

The latest issue, Summer 2024, is now being delivered to the residents of the Five Villages by our dedicated team of volunteers. We were expecting a delay as all printers are very busy with election stuff, but I have to say W.O.Jones (Printers) Ltd have pulled out all the stops this time. Some copies may also be available for reading in Holywell Library and in some pubs and cafés within the Five Villages area. Please do not remove those copies but leave them for others to enjoy.

The cover: The grade II listed lime kiln in Gorsedd by local photographer Steven Jones.

This issue will be downloadable (see below) once delivered to our regular readers. It is a zip file so save it and then double click to open it. As it is in PDF format we suggest Foxit Reader or Adobe Reader (both free) to view it. All content is copyright and so you will not be able to print or copy from these files. If you would like to do this then please email the editor.

We welcome comment and contributions to your newspaper and in particular local news and announcements. Our email address is editor@5villages.org.uk

If you manage a local business and would like to advertise in the Five Villages Chronicle, please email advertising@5villages.org.uk with your requirements.

We publish four times a year, usually March, June, September and December.

We welcome any news and articles which may be of interest to our readers, including family announcements.

The deadline for submission of articles, letters, announcements and advertising for inclusion in the next issue is 16th August 2024.
