WELCOME to the December and January edition of The Villages Mag. I hope you have some wonderful plans for this month, Christmas and the New Year. This edition covers two months, so keep hold of it till the next one is out, as you never know if you might need one of our businesses in January.

I would like to start this introduction by sending a big thank you to all the team at Lowes Farm Shop as they stepped up to support The Holmes Chapel Partnership recently and gave them a location to store Santa’s Sleigh (for use when Father Christmas visits Holmes Chapel). They have been very kind in letting the Partnership use a barn to get the sleigh ready and store it for the year.

We have two important things to mention, and the first is our new podcasts. We want to build a bigger picture and help you get to know our local businesses, so I have joined up my previous radio career at the BBC with my interest in local businesses and contacts to produce a podcast. You will start to see QR codes on adverts or within articles; scan these codes or visit and you can listen to all the podcasts on our website. We appreciate our world is digital, and while our traditional way of promoting businesses works so well for our advertisers, we wanted to add a digital layer to our business and we believe this podcast is a great way to start. I hope you enjoy the first one from local business person Emma Semper Hopkins, who tells me all about her upholstery business.

We have also launched an online shop for Christmas (see page 47), with a range of jumpers and gifts. All profits raised from items sold through this shop will go to the Middlewich and District Foodbank. We are using a print-on-demand service, therefore we don’t hold any stock – this means purchases can only be made through the website. I do hope you can support this good cause!
