The first issue of the Village News appeared in January 1979. In those days it was a parish magazine for the three villages of Kirtlington, Weston-on-the-Green and Bletchingdon. As the populations grew and the production task became unmanageable, each village’s magazine became an independent operation.Looking through the archive, we see the first time our magazine was published under the name of Kirtlington Village News was Issue 66 for December 89 / January 90. In August 2020 Kirtlington Village News celebrated its 250th edition and continues to keep readers in touch with what is going on in the village.
The Village News is published six times a year and is a forum for all villagers. Tell us your news and views. We’d love to hear from you.
