Sawston Scene is the village magazine for Sawston, Cambridgeshire. (Find out more about the village on Wikipedia.) The aims of the magazine are:
- to be informative
- to promote community spirit within Sawston
- to be non-political, non-sectarian and non-profit making.
The first issue was published in April 1970 by a group of young mothers who were new to the village. One of them was Jean Osborne, who is still on our production team.
The magazine is published every two months, with issues coming out well before the first cover month, for December-January, February-March, April-May, June-July, August-September, and October-November.

We offer a PDF version of the magazine to any subscriber who finds the printed version hard to read, so they can read it on screen in larger print, with live hyperlinks. Just email our subs manager with details of your subscription address.
Here’s a sample PDF of one of our walks: this is the Pampisford Wych walk, from our December 2010–January 2011 issue.
