Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jo-Anne Rowney jo-anne.rowney@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

A TOWN’S parish mag­a­zine has been held up as the best in the coun­try after com­pet­ing against 600 other pub­li­ca­tions.

The Bea­cons­field Parish Mag­a­zine, the monthly bulletin rep­re­sent­ing church news and wider Bea­cons­field com­mu­nity news, was de­clared over­all win­ner in the Na­tional Parish Mag­a­zine Awards or­gan­ised by on­line prin­ters www. parish­mag­print­ers.co.uk.

The mag­a­zine is dis­trib­uted to nearly 1,000 homes. It pro­vides news from all the churches in Bea­cons­field, as well as a num­ber of lo­cal com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Ed­i­tor Mar­garet Mardall said that she was sur­prised but pleased to be an­nounced the win­ner.

She said: “Thanks are due to all those who con­trib­ute to the mag­a­zine through­out the year and to Turville Print­ing Ser­vices of High Wy­combe for their in­put in its pro­duc­tion.

“We are also very grate­ful to all our ad­ver­tis­ers, read­ers and dis­trib­u­tors for their in­valu­able support.”

There were more than 600 en­tries this year.

Rev Dr Jeremy Brooks, the vicar at St Mary and All Saints Church, Wind­sor End, writes the in­tro­duc­tion for the pub­li­ca­tion each month.

In the three

years that Mar­garet has been ed­i­tor, the mag­a­zine has gone from strength to

strength”

He said: “I am de­lighted that the work of all those in­volved in the mag­a­zine has been recog­nised in this way.

“In the three years that Mar­garet has been ed­i­tor, the mag­a­zine has gone from strength to strength.

“She is ably sup­ported by a very will­ing team, in­clud­ing her hus­band George, who has pro­vided su­perb pho­tos for each edi­tion.

“To emerge the na­tional win­ner is a real credit to the whole team.”

The mag­a­zine can be read on­line at www.bea­cons­field parish­mag.org.uk.
