The Atworth Village Magazine and Archive


The Atworth Village Magazine is the monthly magazine for the village and parish of Atworth.

As reported on the front page, Atworth has a new magazine editor/publisher, Paul Tyler.
Welcome to Paul and good luck and every success in the venture.
Kenneth Spencer, Editor/Publisher, 2006-2012.

The first Atworth Village Magazine was created in 1977 by Esme Lambert and the late Elsie Gravestock, with Jennifer Barton. The sub-title of the magazine "Yer 'Tiz" was introduced after a competition for the name, and was the suggestion of Esme Lambert. The name reverted to the the Atworth Village Magazine for a while in 1995. There are some early examples of magazine covers here.

From about 1995 to 2006, Martin and Lynne Beta were responsible for publishing the magazine.
In September 2006, avoiding a break in publication, Kenneth Spencer took on the responsibility of editing, producing and publishing a magazine for the village of Atworth. He named the new magazine "The Atworth Village Magazine", reverting to the title sometimes used in 1995 and at other times.
Kenneth is grateful for the help of Penny Laver, John Carter, and Jim Marsden for their help with the invoicing rôle, and Julia Kirwan, Don Coote and his wife Lynne, for distribution help in the past.
In February 2009 Kenneth was delighted to welcome Jasmine Cainey as the Young Persons' Correspondent for the magazine, and when Jazz left to go to University to study journalism, we were very pleased that Elena Rossi indicated that she would like to write the Young Persons' Correspondent column - thus Elena started in September 2011 with volume 35.
Note: The email address for contact with the new magazine editor, Paul Tyler, can be found in any issue from December 2012 onwards.
