I woke up this morning and checked my mailbox. Ok - not straight away. It was after a very strong cup of coffee. I cannot function before that.
What I saw was an e-mail from the National Association of Independent Publishers telling us that I had been nominated in several categories and and shortlisted as a finalist in the 'Inspirational magazine business owner' award category. Apparently, this year there has been a huge increase in nominations (up 64%) so the boffins at the association tell us we should be really proud..
And of course, we are.
But, without our readers and you, the local businesses and our advertisers, the backbone of our local economy, we would have no service to provide to our readers and, quite simply, no magazines to produce, print and distribute.
So thank you. Whether you are an existing or previous advertiser or whether you have simply enquired about advertising. Thank you for supporting us and thank you for using your local business directory.
Here we write about what takes our fancy.....
Did you know? As well as all the ones in our distribution area, around 900 more businesses receive each issue of our magazines in the post.
