The Chimes is an independent magazine financed by advertisements and donations, published monthly (other than in August & January), with a circulation of 1,500. Published and delivered free of charge to every household & key venues (pubs & village halls) in the villages that we serve.

The Chimes distributes in South Herefordshire to the villages and hamlets of Aston Crews, Aston Ingham*, Bromsash, Gorsley*, Kilcot, Lea*, Linton*, Phocle Green, and Upton Bishop*, together with their surrounding areas.

News for inclusion in the magazine is gathered by a team of Sub Editors, based in the five main villages*. Each month, one of our four Editors produces the magazine using this news. We welcome all items of news and local interest.

The ethos of the Chimes is to be recognised as the provider to our readers, of news and information by our villagers, about our villages. “A local magazine for local people”!
