Bringing local people and businesses together since 2005!

Our Story

In 2005, the Layder family launched a local magazine 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.

Fast forward 18 years to 2023 we are proud to have eight local magazines with 38,500 copies dropping through letterboxes in and around Chester every month. There isn’t much we don’t know about advertising and marketing, and between us we have nigh on 40 years experience of working with companies and traders, large and small, with a genuine interest in the individual journey to develop and sustain your place in the particular business sector – as we have.

No artwork? No problem!

We understand how busy life is, especially when you’re running your own business, which is why we can do all the design work for you if you don’t have an existing advert. We can even start you off with a new brand if you don’t have one! We’ll make the process from booking to seeing your ad in print as seamless as possible.
