The latest issue of “Eynsham News” has had an eventful ride.
With over 2,000 homes to cover, volunteer distribution manager, Pam Breeze, was desperate for a way to get the bundles round to her delivery team - she doesn’t drive. True, members of Eynsham Rotary make the initial run to that key three dozen addresses, for onward carriage - on foot - to every home in Eynsham.

Meantime, we’ve posted an online preview of our latest issue and hope you'll find it interesting. Our primary aim is still to deliver a printed copy to every resident in the parish but we're glad to have found a way to spread its “reach” at no additional cost.
Local contributions are always welcome. Issue #4 will be out on 25 November - copy deadline Friday 8 November. Please get in touch.
