Saturday, May 4th, 2019Welcome to Fringepig

Hello dear people,

Liam the editor has won an election in Devon, and now wants to spend more time with his parishioners, his kids, his stuffed toys and his catalogue of regrets.

We all had a hoot doing Fringepig – from its early days as a website to its three years as a fully-fledged magazine.

If anyone has bought an advert, a refund has been issued and should show up soon. We apologise for the change of plan.

Meh.
