Parkham Pie is the village magazine. It is published monthly and contains a host of articles including stories, travelogues, news and information from the meetings of various clubs and societies. A useful monthly calendar of events in the village is included together with announcements for events and meetings around the village and even includes tide times and phases of the moon. Just a brief flick through the pages will tell you there is a lot going on, even though we are a small community.
The magazine welcomes contributions from residents and anyone with content that may be interesting or useful to Parkhamites.
