June 2019 issue 143 featured

All the articles from the printed copy of issue 143, the June 2019 edition of the Burngreave Messenger, are now online.

You can see all the issues collected in an index at Issue 143 June 2019.

Alternatively, you can download the June 2019 PDF edition if you prefer a digital copy to keep and view offline.

This edition of the Messenger was out a week later than had previously been announced. This is due to the delay in receiving news of our national lottery bid. It also means that our next issue will be slightly later too. You can find out more about the possible future of the Messenger in our editorial article Awaiting decisions.

All being well, our next edition will be our 20th anniversary issue. The first issue of the Messenger was published in July 1999, and for our 20th anniversary edition we will be featuring some of our favourite pieces and bringing back memories of those heady noughties days!
