Christmas Travel – Source: Martin Griffiths

West England Bylines would like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

We hope that you and your families can celebrate in some way and that you stay safe and well.

We would like to celebrate a year in which we have made our voice heard with over 170 articles from 45 writers on a range of topics from Brexit to Covid and from Buying Locally to Tutoring.

We hope you enjoy our special Christmas Issue (No. 12) – out now!

Don’t forget you can join our mailing list for occasional newsletters, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or even donate to our cause. You can also read our sister publications in the Bylines network from Yorkshire to Sussex and West Country to North East.

If you want to write for us please contact me at

See you all in 2021.
