Chester Handbooks

Our Story

Back in 2005, the Layder family launched a local magazine featuring local business adverts, community news, local causes and with an overall aim to bring local businesses and people together. The first issue, named the ‘Huntington Handbook’ was published in April 2005 and was delivered to 1,400 residents by David Layder personally.

Fast forward 16 years to 2021 we are proud to have six local handbooks with 26,000 copies dropping through letterboxes in and around Chester each and every month.
