The New Stour & Avon Magazine

The Official Printed Edition

Hello, and the warmest of welcomes to the very first issue of the New Stour and Avon magazine. And it really is a case of so far so good, as it’s been a real joy putting this issue together.

I’ve already spoken to some fantastic local people, already been interviewed on Radio Wimborne, and I’ve been completely overwhelmed with the response to the news of the magazine’s launch.

To give you a bit of background information on me, I’ve worked in publishing for around 30 years now, and during that time I’ve been lucky enough to work on a wide variety of magazines and newspapers. Over the last five years I’ve published a community magazine in Somerset, and I know what it takes to produce something that people will hopefully read and enjoy.

Ultimately, we’re here for you. Is there a feature you’d like to see in an upcoming issue? Tell us about it! And if you’ve got a strong opinion on something local to you, then write a letter in and we’ll print it in our Letters pages – more on that very soon.
