Welcome back!

Welcome back to all our readers and advertisers. The November 2021 edition, the first since March 2020, is about

to hit your doormats and a digital version is here on the website so you can have a sneak preview! It is a

bumper edition with 24 pages.


There is a new editorial team in place now – many thanks to Christine and Frank for editing the Voice for so

many years. There is a new look to the paper; the masthead colour will change every month so you can identify

each edition by its unique colour. We hope you enjoy it.


The deadline for the Christmas edition is coming up fast – Tuesday 7th December. Please send your news, photos,

letters and features to the usual email address: lanchestervillagevoice@yahoo.co.uk or by post to the Community

Centre. Full details are in the paper. If there are any events which you would like us to cover, please get in

touch using the same method.


Looking forward to your feedback, news, photos, letters and features etc.


The Editors



Welcome to the Lanchester Village Voice

The Village Voice is a newspaper which comes out monthly for the village of Lanchester, Durham. It is run entirely by volunteers.

It began in January 2000 when a few local residents got together to produce a ‘What’s On’ edition with a few other items about the village. It was felt that this would be very useful as there were, and still are, so many organisations in the village.

Now, the paper has grown over the years to an average size of 24 pages, with about eight editions with front and back pages in colour. Our advertisers have also increased dramatically from the beginning and there are currently about 60 or so advertisers in our portfolio.

There are almost 3000 papers printed delivered by 40 volunteers to every house in: Lanchester, Iveston, Hollinside, Satley, Hurbuck Cottages and Malton. Further copies are dropped at: Burnhope to three shops, Langley Park to two shops and Annfield Plain to one shop.
