This month’s newsletter is full of Christmas messages, the editor’s Christmas pondering, and plenty of ideas on what to do and where to go.

Sarah Jones recalls her family’s exploits at the Penrhyn Quarry adventure centre…

.. and Caroline Harper turns theatre critic, Jordan reviews the White Stars and Sammy has some games to play on your tablets.

We publish 10 editions a year – that’s one each month, apart from January and August when we take a short break.

Though based in Snailbeach and The Stiperstones, we distribute 350 hard copies to households and businesses all over the South Shropshire Hills including Pontesbury, Malehurst, The Hope Valley, Pennerley, The Bog, Shelve, Welsh Row, Buxton, Round Hill, White Gritt and beyond!

We also email full colour digital copies to a further 150 households and businesses beyond the range (and legs) of our trusty band of distributors for those who have left the area, but would still like to keep in touch with news and forthcoming events.

You can generally pick up a black & white hard copy from The Stiperstones Inn as well – if you’re quick! They disappear at a rate of knots…

You’ll find an archive of previous Newsletters here, as well as the current month’s edition.

There’s also a directory of all our advertisers, so you will be able to find anything from a local builder to a butcher, from a gunsmith to a chimney sweep, from yoga classes to hair dressers and even a coal man!

Upcoming local events will also be updated each month by our trusty website administrator, Geoff Sproson.
