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 households within the Benefice.
Eddie Kench lovingly published the BRN since the first issue in August 2000, making this year its 23rd year! Sadly Eddie passed away in early 2021 from Covid-19 and has now been succeeded as editor by Trudi Wild, whom he had been coaching to take over from him for a number of years prior.
To date, approximately 493,200 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.
Content and advertising submissions for publication are gladly received.
The deadline is usually the 15th of each month for inclusion in the next issue.
All editions available digitally are provided here for posterity and research. Please contact us for more information.
