The Parish News is once again being printed and distributed to subscribers. Until the end of the year it remains freely available on this website, however, if you would like to receive the Parish News electronically (as a PDF attachment to an email), from 1st January 2021 this will be available by subscription only, at the same price as the printed version. To ensure you get your copy online, write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., giving your name and address. You will then receive an invoice and be invited to pay your subscription by BACS.
You can download it and read it on screen or print it out by clicking on the links below.  After January 1st, the previous months' versions of the Parish News will continue to be loaded here as a digital archive.
Please look at the adverts too. Advertisers provide a substantial part of the cost of running the magazine.  Incidentally this page is visited about 200 times per month so we are obviously reaching lots of people.



The current Editors have thoroughly enjoyed their three years working as part of an established team to bring the Parish News to you. We now feel it is time for someone new to take the reins. We are looking for two people to share the job, either working together on each issue or, as the current editors have done, working independently to a mutually agreed rota - the choice is yours!  No previous editorial or journalistic experience is necessary – just a basic knowledge of word processing and an enthusiasm to play a useful part in our community.  Help will be available during the ‘handover’.

The Parish News keeps the communities of East and West Chaldon, East and West Lulworth and Winfrith Newburgh in touch with all that is going on in our villages and surrounding areas. This includes news from our churches, our many and various clubs and societies and information about village events. The Parish News also publishes fascinating articles covering farming, wildlife, book reviews, history and much more. The advertisements support local businesses and provide our readers with easily accessible information about essential services and tradesmen.

If you would like to know more, please get in touch with the Chairman, Rosie Johnson on 01305 852885 or e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We look forward to hearing from you.

(At this time of the Coronavirus, The Parish News is available only on-line, but, in time we hope to restore to printing a paper copy. That decision will be taken at the appropriate moment in the future, as we begin to come out of the current pandemic.)

This website contains lots of information about the church, it's history and the graveyard.  If you have anything suggestions or information or images that would be useful in a historical context please contact the Church Warden.
