Tipton Times

Tipton Times is the village magazine produced bi-monthly and started in 1969.  It is created, published and distributed by volunteers, delivered to villagers in and around Tipton, and posted to interested subscribers by its supporters.

We welcome contributions,photographs,letters and articles relating to village life and which will interest Tipton residents. We prefer submissions via email to the address below, but typed copy is also welcome.



Welcome to the autumn edition of Tipton Times. At our recent editorial meeting, we were discussing ways of further improving the quality of Tipton Times and it occurred to us that we frequently find ourselves discussing the front cover and the need for a good selection of photographs appropriate to each issue.
In the absence of a ‘staff photographer’, we decided to launch a friendly competition among our readers for which the first prize would be pride of place on the front cover. Since our next edition covers December and January, we would be delighted to receive any offering in digital form, which reflects the season: winter, late autumn or Christmas. We may well use other contributions elsewhere in the magazine – although this raises the long-standing question of the quality of photographic reproduction which we are currently able to manage in the pages of the magazine body.
It is in our plans to upgrade our printer in due course; meanwhile, in order to enjoy our photos and illustrations at their best, readers can always log on the online edition on the village website.
We do hope you enjoy this edition, regardless of the print quality. We are pleased to have some readers’ letters this time – something we are frequently reminded would be a ‘good thing’ in Tipton Times, whenever we ask for suggestions. There is an Eco Challenge from the School for you to look at on Page 16.
Finally, we would very much like to add our congratulations to Chris and Desmond Dunn on reaching the remarkable landmark of their 70th wedding anniversary: there is more on their celebrations inside on page 32!
