From Katy

This month has been a busy one in The Villages Mag household (otherwise known as Katy, Matt, son Archie and dogs Jake and Teddy) because of home schooling and many of our businesses reacting to the reopening plans in the coming months. It is a relief that Archie is back at school and we can finally focus on the job in hand.

In this edition we hear what artist Ian Hill-Smith has been up to during lockdown in the Bottle Bank Holmes Chapel, and we have our regular contributors including Jack from JWC with his fitness piece, Grandma’s kitchen is baking some Easter Treats, Karen from Cheshire Clinical Reflexology talks about stress, we learn about Sandiford Cottage in the history piece, Evolve Family Law have written about covid divorce health and I speak to Alison from Sandwiches Direct.

We have also have a special writer in this edition, local teenager Marianne Hamilton contacted me and asked if she could write an article about being a young person in lockdown and I jumped at the chance, I urge you to read her piece and remember you saw her first in The Villages Mag.

I hope you find some time to sit down with a brew and thumb through your April Villages Mag.

Why Advertise in

The Villages Mag




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.
