We support local businesses & charities.
It was looking for local information that sparked the first Stow Times - 1,000 black & white magazines printed and delivered in February 2004, and then into Moreton in Marsh in 2007. With readership growing and local contributions increasing every month, Bourton Times and Chipping Norton Times were added in 2010.
In 2017 the four magazines were rolled into one title as COTSWOLD TIMES.
We have been publishing and delivering magazines every month since then (not Januarys) - until Covid 19 arrived last year. So many local businesses had to close. They are our marketplace - we have been entirely funded by advertising revenue - temporarily we suspended the magazines.
In 2004 the four magazines became COTSWOLD TIMES
We share local information
- events, news and articles, club, church and council news,
letters, competitions and correspondence ….
