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. But plastic wallets or bags (recycled to save the planet) aren’t the sturdiest of containers and had a nasty habit of spilling all over the car.

The answer came out of the blue, in a visit to Ikea (by bus, of course). Their shiny shoppers carry 100 copies of “Eynsham News” in style and didn’t break the bank. But it took a while for Pam to persuade her team to hand them back …

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.
