The newsletter issues once every two months.

It is distributed free-of-charge to all households (more than 700) in the parishes of Lynsted with Kingsdown and Norton as a valuable source of information for forthcoming events and for advertisements placed by local product and service providers.

Our circulation also includes ex-parishioners living near and far (most of whom contribute to the cost of postage or they request a PDF copy by e-mail). The Newsletter is produced in A5 format and runs to around 80 pages.
