The Parishioner - the home of the Yarpole Parish Magazine, for news, views, events, comments, church services and much more.
The Parishioner has existed in its present form since the beginning of 2011, but there has been a Yarpole parish magazine for many years, with several different editors and changes in format. 350 copies are printed which go out to every household in the parish. 7 audio copies are also produced by the RNIB for parishioners with visual impairments. The magazine is free; the costs are met by advertising and donations in the collection box in the shop. There are 10 issues per year, omitting January and August.
The deadline for contributions is the 10th of the previous month, and these should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For those without email, written copy can be left in the newsletter box file in the shop.
The parishioner welcomes adverts which can be be 1/8th page (£5), half page (£10) or full page (£20) with discounts for multiple insertions. Its format is A5, so a full page advert is A5 size. Adverts can be sent in as described above, and payment should be by cheque, payable to Yarpole PCC, and posted to Morwenna Lloyd, Duneaves, Lucton, Herefordshire, HR6 9PH, or cash left in the shop in an envelope with Morwenna Lloyd's name on it.
The current newsletter team is:
Brian Mitchell and Hetty Scott - joint editors (we do alternate months)
Sue Child - proof reading
Brian Barnett and Josie Woodfield - printing
Morwenna Lloyd - Advertising
Rhianon Turrell - Typing
Helen and Tony Collins - distribution, assisted by the team of local distributors:

Please send in your news and comments, and use the newsletter to publicise any forthcoming events. This is what makes the Parishioner a real community newsletter.
