Richmondshire Today to launch new monthly magazine

Richmondshire Today has announced plans to launch a new community news magazine.

Richmondshire Today Magazine will be delivered free to 10,000 homes, businesses and community buildings across the district.

The A5 full-colour publication will include a mixture of news stories, features, comment, photos and competitions.

Richmondshire Today editor Joe Willis said the aim of the magazine was to complement the news service provided by the online news site.

He said: “We launched the Richmondshire Today website back in July last year.

“We are thrilled and delighted that it has proved so popular with people who live and work in the district, with between 10,000 and 20,000 people visiting us every week.

“We now want to build on that success by expanding our coverage and relevance with a free magazine. The aim is that anyone from the district who picks it up will find something of interest to read or see, meaning our advertisers get the attention they need.”

Joe said he believed Richmondshire was on the up, meaning it was a great time to invest and launch new projects in the area.

“In every corner of the district there are people doing interesting and exciting things.

“Catterick Garrison is growing all the time, a new luxury shopping centre is to be at Scotch Corner, and across Richmondshire new businesses are launching while new housing is being erected, meaning more and more people are building their lives here.

“Yes Richmondshire has its issues, but it also has a lot going for it and we think it is a great time to expand our business by launching a magazine and tapping into the exciting things happening here.”

The monthly magazine will be funded by advertising with adverts starting from £45 for an eighth of a page – with a 15 per cent discount for advertisers who commit for three months or more.
