BOX RIVER NEWS



BOX RIVER NEWS

The Box River News was started in August 2000 following the establishment of the Box River Benefice consisting of Boxford, Edwardstone, Groton, Little Waldingfield and Newton Green. The newsletter is delivered free to all 1800+ households within the Benefice.

Previously the Boxford Newsletter had been published by the Boxford Community Council together with Church Newsletters from the other parishes - all of which were running at a considerable loss. Following the Retirement of the Boxford editor, Eddie Kench put forward a proposal to the then vicar, Richard Titford and John Wiltshire the then Chairman of the Boxford Community Council to amalgamate all the newsletters and to publish a single, monthly community newsletter for the new Benefice.

Eddie Kench has lovingly published the BRN since the first issue in August 2000, making this year its 19th year! To date, approximately 403,200 copies of the BRN have been printed!
The Box River News is self-supported by local advertising and is published at no cost to the Benefice itself.

All editions available digitally are provided here for posterity and research. Please contact Eddie for more information.
