Archive of past newsletters for the Barningham Group

At the beginning of 2015 the Barningham Group of villages, Baconsthorpe, Barningham, Hempstead, Matlaske and Plumstead joined with the Seven Churches Group of villages, Edgefield, Hempstead, Itteringham, Saxthorpe, Corpusty, Wickmere and Wolterton to form a new Benefice of 10 Parishes.

This website was originally created and maintained by Ian Summers who was also then the editor and producer of the Village Diary & Newsletter for the Baringham Group. Ian retired early in 2015 and this site now remains as an archive and resource for the Village Diary & Newsletter from February 2011 until January 2015.

With the joining of the 10 Benefices the Village Diary & Newsletter became the Church & Village News.

More information about the current Church & Village News can be found on this website:
