July 2018 -- Bigbury News has been accepted as a good cause by the SeaMoor Lotto, sponsored by South Hams District Council.

If you would like to support this initiative - the first step is to go onto the SeaMoor Lotto page and buy some lotto tickets. SHDC says that 60% of all money raised will go towards local good causes, 20% of ticket sales will be put towards prizes and 20% will go towards the running costs. Cash prizes of up to £25,000 are possible -or nothing - depending on your luck.

Bigbury News - December 2017

The December 2017 copy of Bigbury News published on ISSUU.

My last editorial!

When I look back over the past 10 years, things have changed considerably, mostly having lost my dear husband who at the beginning very gallantly took over the editorship from David Gay. Of course you all knew who it really was clicking away at keys!! The format has stayed pretty much the same as when David set it out, I carried on, with this thought “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”! But Jim did take on that continuity of communication in the parish which would have been lost… I hand the baton on to Louise, who I'm sure, will carry the BN on to even more dizzying heights of excellence! Rose.

The next edition ion February 2018 will have a new editor.
