About East Brent Parish Magazine

A small editorial team has now taken over the task of editing, compiling, administering and printing 575 copies each month and we come under the auspices of East Brent Parish Council.  We undertake to ensure that at least 10 editions are produced annually and distributed free to every household in the parish which of course incorporates the villages of East Brent, Rooksbridge and Edingworth. We also have a number of postal subscribers from outside the Parish and visitors to our villages can obtain copies of the magazine through local Post Office's, the Brent Area Medical Centre and Brent Knoll Inn.

You will know how effective local advertising can be: most people like to use local businesses and tradespeople and will turn straight to their local mag in the first instance.  We are non-profit making so our charges are very reasonable and the magazine is delivered directly into some 550 homes as well as being published in full here on our parish website.
