The Messenger Village Magazine

The team of volunteers who produce and distribute The (Bromley) Messenger do a fantastic job. The Great and Little Bromley village magazine, first produced in 1986, is highly valued and we are proud of the quality of content. From December 2016 the name was shortened from The Bromley Messenger to The Messenger.

The printed magazine is distributed free to every household in the villages of Great and Little Bromley. For those further afield who take an interest in the Essex Bromleys we have published a cut-down version here. We also offer a very reasonable postal subscription - please ask. There are currently 11 issues per year with none being published for the month of January.

If you wish to contribute in any way to The Messenger Magazine, including placing an advert or notice, then please contact our editor Leonie Henderson by email. Copy deadline is usually the 14th of the month before.

Simply click on the edition that you wish to access and it will open in your browser. Each new issue is usually published here at the end of the month.
