How to help

How can you support The Heron?

Friends of the Heron
In November 2016, we launched ‘Friends of the Heron’. This replaces ‘Christchurch Village Resource Centre’ as our ‘umberella’ organisation, as we felt that this name had become misleading to people, and no longer reflected what we are about. Friends of the Heron is an informal group which will usually meet twice a year to provide feedback on how the magazine is going, and to help with future plans. It will also provide a management committee to oversee the work of ‘Heron Publications’ – the constitution can be read¬†here

We would like as many of you as possible to sign up to become members, especially if you are already connected with the Heron on the delivery team, or as a contributor. If you are interested, please contact us on 01354 638 088

Delivery Team
If you live in the Christchurch, Euiximoor or Tipps End area, then you will have your Heron delivered by one of our team of volunteers. We are always happy to hear from anyone else who would like to join the team, even if only to provide cover while people are on holiday. To find out more, please call our delivery coordinator, on 01354 638 478

Voluntary Subscriptions
If you would consider paying a subscription of £12 per year to cover the cost of receiving The Heron delivered to your door, we would be most grateful. Please use the BACS payment listed below, or, drop it in to The Old Police House, 40 Church Road.

Postal Subscriptions
If you live outside our delivery area, or have friends or family in other areas who would like to have paper copies of the Heron, you can take out a Postal Subscription. click here for details

The Heron is delivered free to houses in Christchurch, Euximoor and Tipps End, though we do charge for those which are sold in the health centre and other local outlets.We receive revenues from advertisers, occasional fundraising events and donations from readers. We often receive ‘one off’ donations, while others donate regularly by standing order. We are very grateful for all these gifts, which are a great encouragement to us, as well as helping us to improve the magazine, and to make us more financially secure.

Thank you for all your support so far!

Payments can be made; in cash, or by cheque, made out to Heron Publishing – please put in a sealed envelope with your name and address on the outside (if you would like an acknowledgement or receipt) and put in the letterbox of:

The Old Police House, 40 Church Road, Christchurch, PE14 9PQ
