This website is written and maintained by the staff of the Chipping Norton News, a community run newspaper produced monthly by volunteers and sold for 50p from various outlets in and around the town.

The intention of the website is to complement the newspaper; we use it to publish news and events that we don’t hear about in time to get it into print. We also put PDF versions of each edition on this site, a month in arrears.

Essential Information

The News is usually published on the Monday before the beginning of each month. We don’t publish editions in January and August because of holiday disruption.

If you have a story or some information that you think should be in the Chipping Norton News, please contact the editorial team by email: chippymail (at) aol.com
