The Woolaston News
Woolaston News –
The “Wooly News” is intended to be a source of information on the local activities of every interest group in Woolaston.
In the summer and winter editions, it is an page A5 booklet carrying much advertising and editorial copy.
The more discerning readers keep their copy as a reference to various goods and services.
This publication began in the late ‘80s when new house building nearly doubled the centre of the village. A group of volunteers produced an information sheet as a welcome to incomers. For this reason it is still responsible to the Memorial Hall management committee.
Over the next few years the method of production changed from photocopying, manual assembly and delivery entirely by volunteers, to the present where once the whole thing has been assembled on a computer, the final electronic file is professionally printed and distributed.
After a major increase in advertising rates with the Summer 2010 issue, there is once again a small profit for the Memorial Hall.
