MEET THE TEAM

Richard and I worked for multinational companies before running our own business then in 2005 we created this magazine from scratch. We focus our attention on the north-west corner of Norfolk and describe the publication as independent and fair, while others have said we are a ‘trusted voice’.

Editing a monthly magazine is a wonderful job; we get to meet interesting people and publish some great stories. Every month brings something new and we are fortunate to have such a loyal band of contributors covering a wide subject matter.

We’ve lived in NW Norfolk for 25 years with Richard’s family connections going back centuries, and now our youngest granddaughter goes to school in Hunstanton.

Introducing...
Richard and I work with a fantastic team of people to make our magazine happen each month. Three of our key people are Sophie Hooker, Anna Mace and Teresa Plummer. 

Sophie is our journalist, with a First Class Degree from the University of Chester, she's ideally placed to capture all the stories from around the local area to share with you. 

Teresa Plummer deals with our accounts and ensures we run smoothly on a daily basis.
