In January 1919 the first issue of the Crown Court Chronicle was published, and in our archives we have every issue in bound volumes from then until Christmas 1962. We then have individual copies of the magazine for 1963, 1964 and 1965, after which there is a big gap until February 1981. From then until February 1998 we have copies of a number of issues for each year, but we don’t know if this is a complete set. After that, we have copies of every issue up to the present.
With the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of the church on this site coming up in 2019, it would be wonderful if we could fill at least some of the gaps in our collection of the church magazine, which is a fascinating record of the life of Crown Court since 1919. We would therefore be most grateful if longer standing members could instigate a search of their lofts, understairs cupboards and other hidey holes to see if they have any lost copies of the magazine lurking there which would help to fill the gaps in our archives.
And to come back to the present, the next issue of The Chronicle will be published on Sunday 27 August. The Editorial Board welcomes articles and items of interest from members, so if you have something you would like to contribute, please send or give it to the Editor, Sheena Tait, by Sunday 13 August. Sheena is in church most Sundays, and she can also be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org.
