Hardres and Stelling News

Please click here to follow the link to the Hardres and Stelling News

The new style front magazine with full colour front cover was launched in May 2014.  The name was also amended to Hardres and Stelling News.  Click here to see a collage of all coloured front covers.

The Hardres and Stelling News is the Village Magazine for Bossingham, Stelling Minnis and Upper Hardres.  The magazine was originally a church magazine (Stelling & Upper Hardres Parishes) and originated around 1953. It continued in that form until 1973. In 1972/73 both churches suffered arson attacks and co-incidentally the church newsletter ceased and was replaced by a Villages Magazine – The Hardres – Stelling News.  

The magazine normally runs to 40 A5 pages of material plus advertising pages. Space is sometimes available for new advertisers (see) . Each issue contains a diary of events for two months and contacts for most local clubs and societies. Regular contributors are the 2 churches (Stelling and Upper Hardres); Managers of Stelling Minnis CommonHistorical Society;  Upper Hardres Parish Council, Kent Police; The windmill (in season); Stelling Striders; Stelling Minnis School; Farming and Helen the Vet;  to name but a few.        

Articles or letters for publication must be e-mailed to and should reach the Editor by 15th of the month (10th in December) otherwise they may be held over for the next edition. If e-mailing, please ensure the subject line makes it clear that the message relates to the Parish Magazine, otherwise it may be deleted as spam.
