Kidlington News Magazine
We're going online for the duration
While the COVID-19 lockdown continues we cannot distribute the Kidlington News in its usual magazine format.
We have therefore created a website
kidlingtonnews.org which contains the articles and information that you
would expect to find in the magazine including links to sources of advice and
help in dealing with the crisis.
If you wish to submit information or an article please email it at any time to
firstname.lastname@example.org so that the Editors can check it and deal
with any queries before it is posted.
We apologise to all readers who are not on the internet and wish to assure
everyone that we will resume ‘normal service’ as soon as we can. The
subscriptions for issues which have not been published will be credited.
As we cannot contact all our readers directly please do all you can to
spread the word that the website is available.
With best wishes to you all,
Henry Brougham, Chairman, Kidlington News Editorial Board
The April 2020 edition is now published. It contains tributes to Paul
Davies and Ken Marsland, memories of the "Schoolgirls' Strike" and other
We also have reports from the churches, councils and local organisations. But
as it was being prepared for printing (which seems a lifetime ago) it was
already clear that many events were being cancelled and plans changed. So
there was no "What's On" etc. The issue was printed just before the lockdown
came into force and we are very grateful to those distributors who were able to
deliver to subscribers as normal. However, this wasn't possible for everyone
and those not delivered to by hand will be receiving their copy in the post
within a few days. It has not yet been possible to supply all our usual shop
outlets, so please bear with us in these unusual times.
The March 2020 edition contained articles including a tribute to
Trevor Marlow, who served the Kidlington News and St Mary's Church with such
gentleness and warmth over many years. It also had a film review, a book
review, items from local organisations seeking supporters and a delicious easy
pasta recipe. As always there were reports from the Councils, Churches, Schools
and many Local Organisations, as well as announcements and information about
What's On in the coming month. Back issues are available by contacting Margaret
In the February 2020 edition we said farewell to our good
friend and supporter, Robert Windle, and congratulated the winners of the
Broadway Post Office Christmas Charity Draw in aid of BBC Children in Need.

The January 2020 edition included news of the
Kidlington & Hampton Poyle 800 celebrations, including the special Souvenir
Booklet which remains on sale. It had notes on Kidlington's Nobel prize winners
Oxford Bus Museum. And if you had left-over clementines from Christmas you
could try the recipe
for Clementine and Almond Cake. Back issues are available by contacting
