Welcome to Highworth Link Magazine

About Highworth Link

Highworth LINK, the Community Magazine for Highworth and surrounding villages.  The magazine has been published for over forty years, progressing from a black and white church newsletter to the glossy production we have today.  It is run on a ‘not for profit’ basis and has contributed to many worthy local causes over the years.  Its success is based on a balance of news, events, stories and advertising that make it an enjoyable read and a fully functional advertising platform, especially for local businesses. With approximately 6500 copies delivered by volunteers, it is a huge team effort that makes this a real community magazine.

Magazine Distribution

The Highworth Link has always been incredibly lucky to have scores of volunteers who help to deliver our little magazine to homes in Highworth and the surrounding area each month.  Many of these volunteers have delivered for over a decade. We are very grateful for their support.

Approximately 6500 copies of the Highworth LINK are printed and freely distributed to all of the houses in Highworth and some to the outlying villages.  A team of volunteers takes on the task of sorting and delivering them each month. Clive Hall oversees the receipt and sorting of the magazine which is done by a team of people from each of the different churches on a rota basis. Peter Croton then has the task of delivering these ‘sorted’ bundles to various members of the community who, in turn, will deliver their individual bundles to other members of the community for door-to-door distribution. Keith Ratcliffe oversees the ‘country run’ of the magazine in a similar manner to Peter Croton.
