Welcome to the latest issue of Ourtown.
Spring is here and Ourtown is bouncing into the warmer weather with some outstanding features in our April issue, which is now at all our 80 pick up points. We highlight a former Northwich man who lives in Medieval times – well, partly – several champion slimmers, show the teamwork behind Northwich in Need, we tell the tale of a writer and her illustrator who are best friends and report on the goings on in a shed at Hartford. All this and your favourite columns, too.
So what is Ourtown?
It is a free monthly magazine, distributed through a mix of door-to-door deliveries (about 1,800) and pick-ups (about 4,200) in more than 70 stockists throughout the Northwich area. Each issue is eagerly awaited; copies tend to go quickly and are often collected.
OurTown is a real magazine...
…packed with personality features and articles. It is about Northwich people and it is fun, friendly and supportive. Readers want to be entertained, advertisers want readers who look forward to a magazine – and not put it down. Ourtown fits the bill.
What can you expect from Ourtown?
Well, as one month’s issue appears in the shops so previous month’s will be posted here, so if you miss an edition you can always catch up. We will also be bringing you some features and stories on-line and you can use the website to place advertisements.
Who am I?
My name is John Buckley, I was a journalist working on the Northwich Guardian, but mainly its rival the Northwich Chronicle for 35 years.
I was born in Northwich and love the place and hope that is reflected in the magazine.
