Blythburgh Focus - the community newsletter
The first issue of Blythburgh Parish News was published by the Parish Council in December 1998. The launch was made possible with grants from Suffolk ACRE and the Millennium Fund. The newsletter has since chronicled both the official and unofficial life of the parish. It took its present form, edited by David Tytler, with issue no. 14 in October 2003. The newsletter went online with issue no. 34, for May/June 2007. With issue no. 62 for January/February 2012 the name changed to Blythburgh Focus, to end a long-standing confusion with Holy Trinity Church's own publication. The print version of this issue was numbered 62 and the electronic version no. 1 to start a new series. There are normally six issues a year, coming soon after each Parish Council meeting.
The Blythburgh Focus (and the relaunched Blythburgh Parish News before it) is funded privately and is not controlled or supported financially by the Parish Council. Any comments about the Focus should be sent directly to the editor, David Tytler, 01502 478521, or by email and not to the council. Contributions should also be sent to this address.
Suffolk County Record Office in Ipswich has a complete set of the newsletters from 1998.
