MEET THE EDITORIAL 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.
