  • SCAN is the local parish magazine. From 2016, it is published 10 times a year and typically consists of up to 72 A5 pages. No issues in January or August.
  • The name SCAN comes from the first letter of the names of the four villages of the parish in which it is distributed: Sherington, Chicheley, Astwood and North Crawley. It also covers Hardmead.
  • The magazine is distributed free of charge to all households in the area. The circulation for the November 2004 issue was 943 copies.
  • April 2002 saw a change in both Editor and Treasurer/Advertising Manager to Betty Feasey and Wendy Austyn respectively. In March 2006, Christine Barry took over as Treasurer/Advertising Manager. From June 2016, the roles passed to Julia Chinn and Elaine Tarling.
  • The June 2011 issue was SCAN number 408. The total number of advertisers since day one exceeds 310.
  • From 2011, there will be no January edition, but there will be an August issue instead.
  • The editorial team provide their services free, but the printing and materials must be paid for. The costs are met partially by advertising and partially by donations. Advertising in SCAN costs only £260 per annum for a full page and is a cost-effective method of reaching all homes in the area. Half and one-third page adverts are also available. Adverts do not meet the full costs of production and the editorial team are always grateful for donations.
