How you can contribute

We rely on contributions to the magazine content from the community. Our Features editor is always keen to talk to people and find out stories that can be included, but you can also contribute your own material for consideration.

If you have any questions about what may be suitable or how to contribute please contact the Features Editor:

Where you can get your copy

The magazine is published on the first Thursday of each month and is available, price 50p, from the retail outlets listed below.

During the COVID19 pandemic several of these outlets will be closed temporarily under the tier and lockdown rules. However many other shops have remained open and continue to stock and sell copies of Four Marks News.

For those residents shielding or unable to get to the shops, where they have prepaid for their copies of Four Marks News then the team will continue to deliver them to your homes. Please contact the Circulation Manager ( ) to request this.


Welcome To Four Marks

Please help us welcome village newcomers. When somebody moves in near you please will you tell the Circulation Manager ( or 01420 562616 ). We can then arrange for the new arrivals to receive the latest copy of Four Marks News. Whilst we hope it will lead to a new reader in due course, it is also a useful source of information about clubs, associations, churches and local businesses.

Annual Subscriptions

More than 20% of sales each month are to subscribers, which helps us to predict sales more accurately and minimise the number of unsold copies. The subscription year starts in March and the annual charge is £5.50, for all 12 copies of the Four Marks News.

New subscribers are always welcome, so please complete an Annual Subscription form available in the magazine or downloadable here. Please send the completed form and your remittance to the Circulation Manager, . Or contact: 01420 562616

Cheques should be made payable to Four Marks News.

Subscribers receive vouchers that can be exchanged at any of the retail outlets for the current month’s edition. We also offer a postal subscription service for those short of time. For an extra £26.50 for the year (to cover postage) the magazine will be mailed to you on the day of publication. That way you will always get your copy without needing vouchers and a trip to the shops!

Subscriptions can start part way through the year, calculated on the basis of the number of months left to February. The charge for part year subscriptions is 50p each month, plus £2.20 a month if you want to have the magazine posted to you.
