  • Marie Colvin is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wore a distinctive eye patch and was still as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she was confronting dictators. Colvin sacrificed loving relationships, and over time her personal life started to unravel as the trauma she’d witnessed took its toll. Yet her mission to show the true cost of war led her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy, to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

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. Anna has over 15 years experience in Marketing and she works on our marketing and communication, building relationships with readers and advertisers alike. Teresa deals with our accounts and ensures we run smoothly on a daily basis.
