From Katy

The summer is here! This edition of The Villages Mag covers the months of August and September, so please keep it handy for those services you might need during the balmy days of the summer holidays.

We have so many great articles in this edition, including a couple of new contributors, such as talented writer/copywriter/journalist and founder, producer and editor of 45 Not Out blog, Una Cottrell, plus a lovely social history article called Holmes Chapel memories about the early days of the high school.

We would really like your social history stories and your memories of growing up in our lovely villages, so please get in touch for a chat and we can put pen to paper.

We have also added a retro page in the magazine, to bring back memories of our youth; ultimately, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our advertisers, and I am fascinated by vintage adverts, so I have added a page with an advert from yesteryear! This edition is all about the ice lollies we used to love which remind me of those endless summer days, before games consoles, when I would play out with my friends till it went dark (do I sound really old?? I am only 44!).

I hope you have a lovely summer whatever your plans, and I will see you on the other side!

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.
