Henfield editor Pamela Chaston received a national commendation award on Saturday May 10 for the village’s parish magazine.

The award, for “Appealing to a Wider Community”, was given by The Association of Church Editors.

It was presented by Major Stephen Poxon, former editor of The Salvationist, at Westminster Central Hall.

Said Pamela: “This award reflects the work of the magazine team and contributors – and the efforts of all those who have worked on the magazine over the last 127 years. We try hard to broaden our appeal to a widening readership.”

The parish magazine covers the churches of Henfield, Shermanbury and Woodmancote and was founded in 1887.
