Happy New Year from Aston Abbotts Postbox

The Aston Abbotts Postbox is now celebrating its first year of operation. During the past year we have distributed nearly 200 notices via email and we hope that you have found them informative and useful.

The Aston Abbotts Postbox distributes notices of interest to Aston Abbotts residents and friends via email. Posts are moderated, approved and checked for spam. Currently around 2-4 emails a week are distributed.

If you have any suggestions or comments on this service then please send them in to the postbox. Comments won't be sent out to subscribers, but they will be read by the Postbox team. A few tips for getting the most out of your postbox are below.

In the meantime, the Postbox team would like to wish you all a very Happy and Peaceful 2016.

Steve, Stuart and Phil


To join the postbox mail list please end an email asking to be joined to :

You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of each posting.

Please send submissions to the correct address : Emails sent to personal email addresses may get delayed or missed.

When responding to messages please make sure that you respond to the email address (or phone number) given in the message. Responding directly to the Postbox just causes us extra work and delays as we have to manually forward them on to the recipient.

We don't like to send out Word documents for fear of distributing viruses. Generally the only attachments we will forward are pictures and PDF files. We realise that not everybody can convert their Word files so we will endeavour to convert them as appropriate for you, but please bear in mind this might cause a delay as it is all a manual process.

Finally - check your junk/spam folder! At least one subscriber was missing many of our emails as his email program was incorrectly seeing some postbox messages as junk mail. You may need to add our server address - - as 'good' in your email settings.

Thank you.
