    Welcome Pack cover
  • Sherington Historical Society has compiled a 28 page booklet giving details of Sherington's community organisations, facilities and services for the the benefit of new (and existing!) residents. The first issue was delivered to each house in Sherington and was available at 'Sherington on Show' on 11 October 2008. An updated issue was published on 25 July 2009. The most recent issue is March 2015.
     
  • You can also download a copy. It is a 1.21MB PDF file, which can be viewed using Adobe Reader. It is designed to be printed double-sided on A4 paper and then folded in half - the page numbering will then make sense!
