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 Derek Taylor in 1971. By some miracle, copies of the earlier editions have survived.
