Bawburgh News

Our village newsletter, Bawburgh News, has pages filled with news articles, some old and some new. Familiar series such as: stories of people from around Norfolk, history, poetry corner, Bawburgh Voices and Wild About Bawburgh, will fill our columns thanks to our resident contributors, and other pages will provide a platform for news from the Church, Parish Council and Village Hall to inform the village of their goings-on.  This monthly magazine is distributed to nearly all households in Bawburgh, and around 20 are sent by post to other parts of the country.  If you would like to receive Bawburgh News or if you would like to advertise in the magazine, please email the editor at 

The magazine was started in 1983 by then-resident Carol Twinch, who left the village in 1991 and the magazine responsibility then passed to Betty Martins until end 2016, to be passed in turn to Rob Anthony. Copy date is the 20th of the preceding month, and distribution is effected during the last weekend of each month. Hopefully this site will not replace the printed version (price £4 per annum - £10 for inland postal copies).

The magazine also produces a large historical record of the village and a diary of forthcoming events and a Who's Who of the village.  To add to any of these features email the editor at 

Regular features of the magazine include:

  • Village Events
  • Village Hall News
  • Church News
  • Bawburgh Voices (interviews with local residents)
  • Poetry Corner
  • Stories of People from Around Norfolk
  • Wild about Bawburgh
  • Bawburgh's History

The Editor is always open to more ideas and, during the year, hopes to publish photos from villagers. Please send your photos for publication

Copy date for Bawburgh News: Before 20th of preceding month but much earlier if at all possible

On Tuesday 24 October, many of the people involved in producing the Bawburgh News got together to discuss how things were going.

Rob Anthony, the Editor, thanked everyone for their hard work in making sure the News was produced each month and delivered in over 200 households. It was agreed that we should include more historical information from the archives and, where possible, have more colour editions. There was also a welcome for the new 'booklet' format of the News.

The change of format had increased costs slightly but the financial position was still healthy. However, a small increase in advertising charges was agreed.
