Welcome to the latest issue of Ourtown.
May we wish all our 20,000 readers and many advertising clients all the very best of everything for Christmas and New Year.
If you missed December issue in the shops here it is and we have been working very hard on preparing the January edition for the printer before the holidays began. And it is a great issue that includes features on a woman with fantastic circus skills, a personalised Q&A with Northwich’s karate ex-world champion, how Northwich Library aided the recovery of a woman who suffered a mental breakdown and a psychic artist, PLUS there’s a chance to win a racy novel, all our usual columns and money off vouchers for the best pub grub.
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.
