About Witheridge Voice

Distribution

The magazine is delivered free to households in and near the village; additional copies are delivered to the Newsagents 3-4 days after the printed copy has been distributed, and are free. The downloadable web copy is available 5-6 days later.

Publication and copy deadline dates

Publication is four times a year: Winter (late January), Spring (late April), Summer (mid-August) and Autumn (late October). The deadline for advertising and editorial copy is four weeks before the publication date (therefore late December for the Winter issue, late March for the Spring issue, mid-July for the Summer issue and late September for the Autumn issue).

Advertising and event publicity

Please see our advertising rate card for formats of and costs for advertising in the printed magazine.

We are happy to put up a poster on this website publicising your event in Witheridge or the wider area. This is a free service for most events.

How the magazine is run

The magazine and this website are produced by volunteers as a non-commercial venture. The advertising carried is used to fund the costs of publishing, web hosting, and other essential expenses. Any profit arising from the advertising is reinvested in the magazine.

The magazine committee holds an Annual General Meeting on a weekday evening in June each year, in Witheridge Parish Hall. The date and time are announced in the Spring issue of the magazine. Anyone who is interested is very welcome to come along.

The website

We need a new Webmaster! Our website has taken shape over the last two-and-a-half years that it has been in its current form, but there is much content that could be added to it. Owing to work commitments, our current Webmaster Ed Eyles is unable to give it the attention it needs, so we are looking for someone with a bit more time, a little expertise, and plenty of enthusiasm for it! Could that be you, in your spare time? We are not looking for anything too professional or slick. You would be putting up copies of the quarterly magazines and posters from various organisations, as well as making “web-ready” copies of various articles and performing the general administration that any website requires. Behind the scenes we use very basic PHP and a tiny amount of JavaScript, but it would be no obstacle if you were not initially familiar with these languages: Ed would give you whatever support you would need. Do get in touch if you think this may interest you.
