Willersey with Saintbury, Monthly Church and Village Newsletter

Willersey with Saintbury Church and Village News is published at the beginning of every month (except for combined December/January edition). A free copy is delivered to every house in Willersey and Saintbury. Extra copies are also available at St Peter's Church, the Methodist Church, our two Pubs, Willersey Garage and the Tourist Office in Broadway. There are also copies at Signpost and the Surgery in Broadway. (For Willersey School News do see their website.)
(The Tourist Office is open 10-5pm Monday to Saturday, 11-3pm Sundays October to Christmas, and closed January to the 1st week in February.)

The current edition will usually appear here no later then five days after the paper deliveries are made, ie no later than the 5th of the month. The newsletters may take a short time to download. The cover and advertisements are separate files. Eleven editions are published each year with December & January being combined months.

Willersey News is the Parish Magazine for Willersey and also for Saintbury which are both in Gloucestershire.
Its contents includes news from various village organisations, details of the local church services, Village meetings, general articles and advertisements from businesses serving the area.
The Newsletter is run and delivered entirely by volunteers for the benefit of the village residents and any visitors.

The page order may seem strange say (20-1, 2-19, 18-3, 4-17, etc) in some early newsletters but this is a consequence of the layout needed for printing a booklet double sided on A4 paper folded to A5. Some months the pages may be in the correct order.
The printed copy is always all in black and white but the copy here may contain colour images.

Almost all of the cost of the Newsletter is paid for by our Advertisers. Please use them if you need the services they offer.

If you have an article you would like included in the edition for next month, please email it to by the 17th of the previous month (except for the combined December/January edition). Editing starts on the morning of the 18th of each month. Thank you,     Alan and Bill     Editors.

Vale Press in Willersey now do the printing and collating. We are always pleased to receive donations which help towards the costs. Thank you to those who have given donations over the past year. There are eleven editions a year. The December and January editions are combined as the printer has an annual break. One other copy a year sometimes in the summer is also a combined edition.
Vale Press also print the Campden Bulletin, Mickelton Parish Magazine and Weston-sub-Edge Messenger. Both Badsey have a quarterly and South Littleton has a monthly newsletter. Nearby Broadway has its own bimonthly Newsletter.

The 600 or so printed copies are collected from Vale Press each month. They are then divided into batches for the 15+ volunteers who deliver the free copies to every house in Willersey and Saintbury. Many thanks to our volunteers who deliver the copies throughout our villages. If you know of someone who does not receive a copy, please let an editor know on 858601 or 858628. Leave a message if there is no reply and their details will be passed to the appropiate volunteer.

Vale Press in Willersey took over the printing in January 1979. St Peter's Church keeps a library of the Newsletters.

When you email us we may keep a record only of your email address and your name. This will be kept securely. We may in future use it to keep you well informed. If you do not want us to do this please say in your initial email. If in the future you change your mind we will happily delete it if we have kept it and inform you that it has been done, (This will be our last email to you at the time!).

We have a library of back copies of the Newsletter. If you would like to consult it please send an email to
There are some gaps in the library which we would like to fill:-
If you have any Newsletters before June 1979 and between December 1989 and January 1995, we would be very happy to give them a good home (with their friends and family!) Thank you.

The first newsletter was sent out in December 1974 by the Vicar at the time, Godfrey Evans and cost 2p. He did them until he moved. All the covers were the same (without the month designation). The content was typed, reproduced on a duplicator, collated and then stapled. Bill Alexander who lived at Radford House on the Lower Green took over and later Alec Hughes his next door neighbour carried on. When Alec moved, Olive Tuckey and Jean Harris were the editors. When it became more computerised Olive gave up and after advertising more editors were found. The editors then were Alison Arthey, Amanda Roberts, Margaret Clayton and Jean Harris. These four ladies took it in turns until Alison dropped out and later Amanda moved. Margaret Clayton stayed with Jean until April 2013 when Jean carried on alone until December 2015. Bill Jabelman and Alan Gittings are now the editors. Each edition is sent as two files to the printer. One is a jpg of the cover and the content is in a pdf file.
