Witham Word

Here to Serve Your Community

The Witham Word is the amalgamation of the Church Magazine, The Gossip and the Village Hall News now your Community Magazine.  It would have not existed if it hadn’t been for some very determined people over the years who have worked hard to bring you the village news to your doorstep. We thank you for your dedication to your community. We deliver to South Witham and North Witham, around 850 households.

We have regular contributions from the Village Hall Management Committee, the Church and the Parish Council and all of the community groups in the village and much much more.

If you have an idea for an article or wish to advertise your business or an event then please contact the Editor.

Witham Word News 2016

The Witham Word team met in mid-January and have come up with a plan of attack for the coming months.  Due to other village commitment the temporary Editor is unable to commit to 10 issues a year so to lighten the load we are having to reduce the number of issues we produce every year.

As from April 2016 the Witham Word will be a double issue covering April and May.

The table below gives you the deadline dates for all the issues this year.
