The Link - Nov 1977

1st edition of The Priston Link - Nov 1977

The Priston Link, as it was originally known, was first issued in November 1997 by Derek and Pat Hayler, who then lived in the village of Priston.  It was intended as a medium for people to air their views and literary talents, and to provide information on local events.

Subsequently, the newsletter covered Farmborough, Inglesbatch, Nailwell and Englishcombe, and was renamed The Link.

The Link
currently serves Priston, Inglesbatch and Nailwell.  It is distributed by a team of volunteers to over 115 households around the beginning of each month., and is also sent to subscribers abroad, ranging from British Columbia to Brittany via Argyll & Bute.

The Link costs just 6 per year, a small price to pay for staying up-to-date with all the goings-on of the village!  

To subscribe contact the Treasurer Perry Perriton at 4 Summer Lea Priston Tel 471407.

The Link is always keen to get your contributions: details of events for the Social Calendar, other news items, literary gems, jokes etc.

Items will be published  space permitting, providing they are not libelous or offensive!
Anonymous contributions are not accepted.

To make sure that your contribution gets published in the next issue, please provide to the Editors by the 20th of each month.
