Girton Parish News
Girton Parish News is the monthly newsletter of the village of Girton and is produced by volunteers from around the village. The newsletter is funded entirely by advertising, but in the past it was also funded by donations from the village churches, the Parish Council and voluntary donations from villagers. The aim is to produce an informative newsletter which will build up the whole village community
The newsletter is delivered free to every household in the village and is a rich source of village news, listings of church services, excerpts from Parish Council meetings, community notices, diary of events, advertisements from local businesses, village history, humour and activities.
