Volunteers at work


The Kennington Chronicle is the Parish Magazine for Kennington, Vale of the White Horse, Oxfordshire, produced monthly except August. Our policy is “News, not Views.”

A Brief History

The Chronicle, whose predecessor was a church newsletter, published its first edition as a small four-page booklet in December 1984. Since then, it has grown into today’s book of typically between 44 and 52 pages. Its contents include news and contact details of various Kennington organisations, details of the local churches, articles of general local and sometimes national interest, and adverts from businesses serving the area.

The Chronicle is run entirely by unpaid volunteers for the benefit of the village.


Kennington has about 4,000 people in around 1,875 households and organisations. A small army of volunteers delivers the Chronicle free to every Kennington household on or before the start of each month, except for August when there is no edition.

All editions of the Chronicle from July 2008 are available online in a larger size and in colour. Every new edition is put online from about the 25th of the prior month, except for July because there is no August edition.

Large Print

The Kennington Library holds a larger-sized colour copy of the Chronicle. You can also download the latest copy to read or print from your computer.
