Last church magazine in Haworth after 114 years
9:40am Saturday 4th January 2014 in News
Haworth Parish Church’s magazine has ceased production after 114 years.
The final edition of the magazine – covering December and January 2013/14 – has been printed, and the publication’s last editor – Jackie Rolston – has stepped down after 30 years at the helm.
John Huxley, secretary of the parochial church council, emphasised he and his colleagues still intend to ensure people remain informed about church activities.
“We decided the magazine had reached the end of the line, and this coincided with the fact its last editor had retired after many years,” he said. “The magazine didn’t really have a very wide circulation – it was only available in the church – and it was one expense we didn’t need if it was no longer doing the job it was intended to do.
“We’re now looking at other ways of distributing information.”
