Parish Magazine

December 2015

Here at East Winch we now receive both the Middleton, North Runcton and East Winch Parish News and the Gayton magazine - The Voice. Both are delivered regularly to all homes in the village.

The Middleton, North Runcton and East Winch magazine is available online - click here

The Gayton magazine is also online - download it from here


East Winch and West Bilney left the Gayton Benefice in early 2014 - and became part of the West Winch Benefice.
However, there seemed to be a consensus of opinion at East Winch and Bilney that said that it would be nice to continue to receive the Gayton magazine on a regular basis. Gayton has kindly agreed to do this - and to include a page for us.

We expect therefore that the arrangements that were in place before we left the Gayton benefice will continue - more or less seamlessly.

There is no Benefice magazine for the West Winch Benefice (Middlewinch), though both West Winch and Middleton/North Runcton villages have their own parish magazines.

We expect that we shall receive a copy of the Middleton magazine - so we seem to be a winner on two fronts.

To publicise an event in the Middleton/North Runcton magazine send details to: or telephone 01553 849725

(Note that the above reference to the 'West Winch Benefice' is now outdated;  the re-organised benefice, now including East Winch & West Bilney,  is known as the 'Middlewinch Benefice'.

Wendy Smith who for many years was the local co-ordinator for the Parish Magazine

It is distributed to all households within the group of parishes, free of charge, by a band of volunteers.
