Run totally by volunteers, focused on providing topical local news and information, we aim to serve the community. Any small profit we make by advertising local businesses we plough back in for the benefit of the community.

Each month the 44-page magazine is delivered free to over 3,000 homes by our team of volunteer distributors. We welcome participation by anyone in Chineham who would like to become involved.

This website contains a whole heap of  resources, as well as the Chat magazine and information about relevant local services. 

January 2021

Happy New Year to all of you lovely residents of Chineham. I hope your festive seasons,
and any New Year celebrations were wonderful—and safe. With the new year comes
some changes for the Chat. For this new issue of 2021 we are moving to nothing other
than a new printer. We are so grateful to our wonderful previous printer, Martin
Biermann, who has been producing the Chat for more issues than anyone can
accurately recall. However, by moving to Greenhouse Graphics we are able to resume
printing in colour! This was something flagged as desirable during our survey a few
years back, and we have been investigating how to make it happen. It has taken many
months of careful investigation but we look forward to working with Greenhouse
Graphics. You’ll notice a few changes in the coming months as we take advantage of
the new options offered. To that end, if you are interested in advertising—in colour!—in
the Chineham Chat please get in touch with adverts@chinehamchat.com.

However, on a sadder note we also say farewell and thank you to our wonderful
Assistant Editor, Kirstie, who is leaving the area. She has done an amazing job over the
last couple of years and will be much missed. I have to wonder what else 2021 has in
store as it is already looking like an interesting one. We will have to watch and see...
