The Stoke Row News is produced each month and aims to inform local people about events in their locality. It comprises 20 x A4 pages of reading matter and four (yellow) pages of advertisements. The yellow page adverts are only accepted annually, usually in November, by Sue Glanville. Adverts for inclusion between copy matter are sometimes accepted by the Editor throughout the year.
The closing date is 22nd of each month, earlier in December and February, and it is aimed to have the finished product with the reader before the 1st day of the following month. The price is 20p per month and has been so since 1991, thanks to our advertisers and voluntary workers.
Regular contributors include the Church of St John the Evangelist, the Stoke Row Chapel, Stoke Row Primary School, Notes from the Stoke Row Parish Council meetings, 1st Stoke Row Scouts, the Checkendon Playgroup, the Stoke Row Parent and Baby Group, the Art Group, the Stoke Row Women’s Institute, the Wednesday Club and the Garden Club.
As well as these regular contributions, we welcome those about personal matters e.g. births, deaths, weddings etc and local events.
A whole page given over to Diary Dates and an In and Around section, detailing such items as Births, Deaths, Marriages, special birthdays, etc and warm welcomes to people who have recently moved into the village. There is also a Highmoor page as this adjacent village does not have a magazine of its own and its 90+ subscribers constitute a quarter of the total circulation of almost 400 copies per month.
This magazine is delivered voluntarily to most homes is Stoke Row and Highmoor but is also available from The Stoke Row Village Stores, The Stoke Row Garage, The Cherry Tree and the Checkendon Stores. Applications for regular delivery can be made to Ray Tee.
