In April 1991 this changed, and a short article was submitted to the Parish Magazine
every month, and every quarter a Trust Magazine was produced.
The first edition of this magazine was distributed in Summer 1991. It was a 12-page
A5 magazine, only given to members of the Trust, and contained information about
the Trust’s finances, local walks, articles on wildlife, the local area and local
