Do you take LINK magazine?  If not, do you know what LINK is?

LINK is the Church and Community Magazine for Radcliffe-on-Trent and Shelford.New cover

LINK has been providing Church & Community News for Radcliffe-on-Trent & Shelford for over eighty years.  If you are interested in what is going on in and around Radcliffe you need LINK!

LINK provides a diary of Church & village events, news, local club articles and quizzes;  also items of interest including travel, wildlife, adventures and history all written by local residents.  There is a topical viewpoint each month and an opportunity for weddings, baptisms and life to be celebrated and remembered. 

Do you know about Messy Church, held every month in St Mary's Hall for families with young children and the children's clubs which are held during school holiday time?

Find out the times in LINK!

The magazine also contains a helpful central directory of 80 local services and businesses and contact numbers for the local groups and organisations, a must have for any resident.

Money raised from the magazine helps towards maintaining the Parish Church for us all and we are currently facing a huge expense to replace the Church roof at St Mary's.  The church is always available and ready to provide a range of essential church services to the community.

Also, if you belong to a local interest group and would like an article considering for the magazine or have news of a local event,

Is there anyone else who could share enthusiasms or experiences with us all? Your ideas for a series or for just one article will be warmly welcomed. Please get in touch.

It is good to report that an increasing number of community organisations want to use our magazine to give news of their activities. A lot of people take LINK, although the competition from glossy free publications is real. We are very aware of the need to keep our presentation lively and up to date.
