Farnborough Parish Magazine is published monthly, and is thought to have been in continuous production since 1899, see Magazine History

More recently, falling church attendance, the rise of the internet, and competition from free local advertising papers, have made maintaining a sufficient number of subscribers to cover the production costs more challenging.  Accordingly the pricing has had to be reviewed.

The total cost for the magazines including delivery to your door by a delivery van (or by Royal Mail for those outside the BR6 postcode area) is now £30 per year.

If you would prefer to receive the magazine as an email with pdf attachment the annual cost is £10.

This pricing is designed to ensure that subscriptions now cover production and distribution costs.

See below for methods of payment and conditions.

Parish Magazine Deliveries

We have a small dedicated team of distributors for our Parish Magazine.  We would very much like to have further volunteers to either cover illness and holidays or on a permanent basis, which would take approximately 45 minutes to an hour a month. 

If you are interested in helping in this most important duty would you kindly contact
Paul Barnes on 01689 822005.


Hello from your New Editor!

Hello everyone. My name is Gail Low. Some of you may recognise my name but not be able to place me. I have visited St Giles on a few occasions with my retired Guide Dog Jasper. It’s amazing how many people remember him rather than me! I have volunteered as editor of this magazine because the magazine and St Giles mean a lot to me and I wouldn’t want the magazine to stop. So this will be a challenge for me to try something different and something out of my comfort zone. I can often be found baking and decorating cakes, from birthday cakes to wedding cakes and they are far easier than editing this magazine!

I am very grateful to Helen and Eddie for their support with this issue and to all the people who have sent me articles to be included. Please keep the articles coming!

Gail Low, April 2023
