May Front Cover

Roundabout is a monthly magazine covering “news, views and information” about people and events in the villages of Brenchley and Matfield. It was started in 1975 by David Bowerman and has enjoyed an unbroken print history produced by a succession of dedicated volunteers. The current team took over at the beginning of 2005 and now comprises six volunteers who handle all aspects of the magazine bar the printing.

A further dedicated band of volunteers distribute the magazine to nearly 600 households in the two villages on the first Sunday of the month whilst copies are also available from the local post offices and shops.

The online version will be uploaded on the day of publication and will be available to read until the following month’s edition is printed. It can be downloaded onto your computer, tablet or phone. This is a free service and no special software or app is needed. Each month a link to the online edition will be sent out by email to subscribers. If you would like to receive this link, please email:
