Welcome to ECN

Eastington Community News

is the Community Magazine

for  people in  Eastington in Gloucestershire.

 Produced and delivered free to over 800 homes, thanks to an army of dedicated volunteers
and our supportive local businesses.


 Printed editions are not currently delivered in Great Oldbury – but you can collect a copy free from the Co-op. 


 How to use this website:-

  • Select the ‘Latest edition‘ tab from the top menu to zip through titles/excerpts for the whole issue, or you can ‘step through’ the full magazine by selecting an article and then using the next/previous links at the bottom of each page.
  • Choose from the ‘Month‘ box in the side menu to see a previous issue.
  • Choosing from the Category box in the side menu will show you a list of all articles on the same subject  back to Oct 2017,
  •  Select the ‘Other goodies‘ tab to see further  ‘back issues’.  This includes a category index back to 2014 and  a pdf archive that goes right back to 2008.  You will also find our easy access to older Local History articles by Steve Mills as well as some gallery pages and other useful info.
  • The Search box will allow you to search through all posts back to Oct 2017 for a word or phrase.  This is a very fast way of finding an article.

For easiest use, please make your  screen window wide enough to allow the side bar menu to show. On a narrow screen/mobile etc the ‘side’ menu will be at the bottom of the page and is accessed more easily from single articles.
