The Parishioner - the home of the Yarpole Parish Magazine, for news, view 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. 380 copies are printed which go out to every household in the parish. 5 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 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), quarter page (£7.50) or half page (£10) with discounts for multiple insertions. Its format is A5 so a half page advert is A6 size. Enquiries can be sent to the email address above.

The current newsletter team is:
Hetty Scott - Editor (we are looking for a joint editor to do alternate months)
Adam Scott - Advertising and admin
Josie Woodfield and Nic Treece - Distribution, with their team of local distributors:

Emily Allen, Brenda Bashford, Christine Cheshire, Liz Connelly, Anne Dobson, Alan Godding, Mr Grafton, Gilly Lloyd, Morwenna Lloyd and Paul in Lucton, Jenny Orpin, Jan Price, Deborah Rackham, Sue Smith, Norman Taylor and Rob Woolley.
