Initially produced by the vicarage on a Roneo stencil machine (pictured right) by the hands of God, it was updated into the 20th Century by Richard Elleray using an Apple Macintosh Plus and an Apple Imagewriter. Later this technology was upgraded to a Mac SE, then a Mac Quadra with a Apple Laserwriter, then finally an Apple G3 Power Mac.

From a typewriter onto a stencil , through MacWrite to Adobe Pagemaker it made it into the 21st Century.

Therafter it was edited by Anne Horler  using Adobe Insight, and by Suki Williams using MS Publisher.

Contact is printed monthly and distributed free-of-charge to every village household …..
