V L Editor

The Summer 2019 edition of the Village Link magazine is currently in the final stage of editing and will be delivered in early June. All contributions to the magazine are very welcome, whether you have a church connection or not. Anything you want to ask? Please don't hesitate to telephone Eileen on 872618 or Church Office on 873337.

Remember though, that you can send anything for inclusion to Eileen at any time; in fact it's better to get things in early rather than wait, as you may leave it too late. Send what ever you have to .

The editor starts on the magazine a long time before it is due, so if you send a long article a few days before deadline, it is unlikely there will be enough space for the whole thing; plan ahead wherever possible to avoid disappointment!

A few suggestions...
News of groups or clubs.
Interests, projects, hobbies, forthcoming events/reports on past events.
Points of View, Thanks, Anniversaries, Special birthdays.
Memories, (especially of life in the villages in 'days gone by'.

It is worth having a look at the old editions of the Village Link below to see what was going on, and also to see if things which were happening then, have changed at all; there are now 66 to look at and 1,000s people have already downloaded The Village Link. The later editions of the On-Line Village Link have color graphics.

For those who would like an Advert included, please refer to the Ts & Cs below.


The Village Link Magazine now carries a few, select, advertisements for things around the villages. There are things you should be aware of when submitting an advert.

The decision to accept an advert will be at the discretion of the editorial team, who will apply a general test that the advert is beneficial to the residents of the parish.
Cost: Full Page £40; Half Page £20; Quarter Page £10.

Ts & Cs for advertisements

So that the Editor can see how the finished ad should look, please send the complete ad in a standard format: e.g. .doc .pdf or .jpg.

Send any images as separate files. BUT avoid unusual formats. Use standard image formats like 'jpg, 'gif or .ping. Do not use formats which are specific to an operating system, MAC for example.

Specify which fonts you have used. N.B if the font is not available a close match will be used.

Limekilns Church is not a professional printing service and does not have access to every font or image format there is. However, the editor will make every effort to match your design.

The editor reserves the right to correct any obvious grammar or punctuation errors; e.g. T's & C's (which should be Ts & Cs).

data protection

There is no information included in the Village Link which contravenes the Data Protection Act. Nor is there anything which could be used to steal someone's identity.

You should be aware that by submitting any articles or information for inclusion in The Village Link you are giving permission for such information to be included in the magazine in printed form and also the downloadable version.

While the editor reserves the right to edit any articles to better fit the layout, it should be assumed that they will be included as is.

It is your responsibility to make sure any personal information you do not want in the magazine, both on-line and hard copy, is not included in any item submitted to the editor.

N.B. It is also worth mentioning that, unless you are ex-directory, your telephone number, address, postcode and a map of your location is already available on-line at BT.com. Also, records of births deaths and marriages are available on-line from various sources and in greater detail than is ever included in The Village Link.
