  Your news... your ECN!

Your production team are Tom & Jan Low and Mary Gribble.

BUT we are just the technicians - it is you, the contributors, that make the magazine what is is.

This is absolutely YOUR magazine. We just want to help us all to share with each other the ‘goings on’ in the Parish in a way that every one can access.

So why not join in?   Share your story or advertise your local ‘event’ (no charge for charity events). Just email  us at  Contributions, stories, posters and photos are always welcome from anyone connected to Eastington.  You can also write to us at Hazel Cottage, Millend GL10 3SF.

The paper magazine is delivered free to every home in the Parish.  This is thanks to an army of wonderful volunteers and a host of loyal advertisers.  If you have a local business and would like to reach every single resident in the parish then please email us at

If you would like to help out in any way at all or have comments or ideas to share then please email us at - we would really appreciate hearing from you.
