The Witham Word

Here to Serve Your Community

The Witham Word is the amalgamation of the Church Magazine, The Gossip and the Village Hall News now your Community Magazine.  It would have not existed if it hadn’t been for some very determined people over the years who have worked hard to bring you the village news to your doorstep. We thank you for your dedication to your community. We deliver to South Witham and North Witham, around 850 households.

We have regular contributions from the Village Hall Management Committee, the Church and the Parish Council and all of the community groups in the village and much much more.

If you have an idea for an article or wish to advertise your business or an event then please contact the Editor.

Your community magazine is funded through advertising revenue and sponsorship by South Witham Parish Council, The Blue Cow, The Angel, The Buffs, The Church and South Witham Village Hall Committee. Although currently financially healthy, we want to ensure the long-term success of the Witham Word by finding new sponsors. If you would like to support the magazine by sponsoring it any for the amount – and getting a mention for your community spirit - please contact the Treasurer.
