Welcome to the CBO News website


CBO News is the monthly community magazine for the parishes of Churchstanton, Buckland St Mary and Otterford.




Starting with the May 2020 edition the CBO News is online only until further notice. We do not want to risk the lives of our distributors, our readers or the staff and volunteers of the Churchinford Community Shop.

Until the end of the lockdown, CBO News will be free. Your subscriptions will start again when we can resume printed publication.

We realise, of course, that many of our subscribers are not on line, so please, if you can, print off any relevant articles and pass on to them.

CBO News May 2020

We simply ask that you observe the government's directions about travel, isolation and self-distancing and, most importantly, 'Keep Safe'.

With best wishes,

Jon, Josh & Dave


We have recently received a request from The Parishes' Paper which covers Yarcombe, Stockland and down to Kilmington, to publish it free on the CBO News website during the pandemic. Please find a link to the May 2020 edition below:
