Purley Parish News

The first Purley Parish News appeared in 1933 under Revd Ernest Skuse but lasted only a few years until 1938. It was revived by the Rev Harold Hawkins in 1960 and turned into a community magazine by Revd Dereck Taylor in 1971. By some miracle, copies of the earlier editions have survived.

  Access to electronic copies of these magazines can be had either by scrolling down or jumping to the start of each decade and clicking on the edition

  1930    1940    1950    1960    1970    1980    1990    2000    2010 
Please note that there is a lot of work involved in preparing copies of magazines for display so you will find a number of editions not yet ready
