Inside this commemorative issue we have a letter from Eastington Community News, which was born way back in1989!


We highlight some of the issues we still face in our parish and

celebrate some of the achievements people in the parish

have enjoyed over the 50 editions since our centenary.

We have regular articles and news from Eastington Parish Council,the churches and numerous groups all actively participating invillage life.

If you are involved in a group or other activity in the

parish why not send in your article and you may see it in the ECN when it pops through your letter box or online at

We also hear about the reincarnation of Nupend telephone kiosk-

It's not the Tardis but it will be packed with information and artwork and is now open for business.
