A NEW MAGAZINE FOR FOVANT?

Now that the Three Towers magazine has ceased publication, a few of us in Fovant have been talking to the editors of the monthly Village Buzz magazine, a free publication which now includes news from eleven villages.  If you aren’t familiar with it, copies can sometimes be found in the newspaper section of the Fovant Stores. Unfortunately, the VB will no longer be published as hard copy from January 2023 onwards, due to sky rocketing printing costs – it will transform to a digital format. 

The editors of the VB are keen to include news of interest to Fovant residents.  Derryn Hinks, webmaster of the Fovant Village Website, has started to send some Fovant items to the VB, to go in the two last printed editions. 

 

One possibility now is to see if there enough people in Fovant who’d like to buy a specially printed copy of the new digital VB magazine.  The cost of a print run of say 50 copies could be covered by subscriptions committed six months in advance, if there are enough people prepared to pay £2 per month.  You would still, of course, be able to view the online edition for free.

Fovant Parish Council will post a questionnaire to each Fovant household to ask for interest in such a subscription scheme.  We’ll wait to do that until the New Year when we’ve all had a chance to see the new digital version of the VB expanded with Fovant news.  If you don’t have a computer, perhaps a friend could show you or print out the few Fovant pages to help in your decision.
