In January 2013, we fulfilled a longstanding ambition to publish one issue as a paper version which was delivered, free of charge, to every house in town. We'd love to do this every month, but finances don't permit that and there are no plans to repeat the exercise at the moment.
Since, even in Chudleigh, the news changes more frequently than once a month, we have a Facebook Page which we can use to publicise things at short-notice.
