From Katy

I have a spring in my step at the moment, possibly because I am starting to see family and friends again. OK, so we can’t hug and as I write this, we have been sitting in very cold gardens but seeing their smiles and making each other laugh face to face has been a real breath of fresh air! Also, I have made a few health changes during this last lock down and I have lost 2 stone in weight, it has not been easy however I am so proud of myself – I still have some way to go, and I will keep you updated, this will keep me accountable.

You may be wondering where our monthly baking page ‘Grandma’s Kitchen’ has disappeared too, she has had an eventful few months, firstly she slipped on the ice and broke both her wrists and was unable to do anything for two months. Then from Easter both her and Grandad have taken their dream job in Pembrokeshire for the summer running a caravan site in a lovely place called Broad Haven, if you fancy a look the website is southcockett.co.uk.


The beaches are lovely and as we won’t be going abroad this year, we will be pitching our tent up there in the summer, I just hope they have the weather of Spain (fingers crossed).

I am sure when they have settled in, she will be back in the kitchen baking up treats again for us all to try.

I hope you have a good May and I will see you soon.

The Villages Mag has been a staple through letterboxes of residents and businesses of Holmes Chapel, Goostrey, Brereton, Cranage and Allostock and continues to go from strength to strength. Over the last three years we have increased the editorial with lifestyle articles like grandma’s kitchen, local business new, history, motoring and fitness and worked hard to support local events and provide community news from groups and parish councils. 

We are also the ‘go to’ place for local services and business listings. We would like to thank all our advertisers for their support, we understand that our success is only down to them getting paid work through the magazine. We can never guarantee running an advert in the magazine will bring in revenue, however the fact that businesses continue to advertise with The Villages Mag must mean something is working!


Consistent, relevant advertising is the best form and with The Villages Mag it is affordable to all the trades we need to keep our lives running as smoothly as possible.

For more information, to book your advert or artwork specifications, please contact Katy 07541 600 131 or email katy@thevillagesmag.com.
