The Dorney Parish News, in its current format (or akin) was launched in the 1950s under the editorship of T. W. E. Roche (known as Twee).

 

T.W.E. Roche was a very erudite man and wrote "The Precious Blood. A History of Burnham Abbey 1266-1966" and "A Pineapple for the King", a history of the Palmer family.

 

He also wrote the script for the Dorney Pageant on the occasion of the opening of the new Village Hall in Dorney Reach in 1970.

(Above history thanks to Charles Cody)

 

Charles Cody was editor of Dorney Parish News for fifty years from January 1968 to December 2018. 

 

The current editor, from February 2018, is Peter Bowman. 

 

A listing of the main issues of the day as covered by the Dorney Parish News is being prepared from November 1959 (earliest copy currently available in current format) to date.

 

1959 - 1965 (exc 1960 and 1963 at present) items listed below. More years will be added regularly!
