The Handy Mags are the essential free local lifestyle magazines for York and Ryedale and have been part of local life for 15 years.

Every month we publish two full-colour lifestyle magazines, that drop through the letterboxes of 53,000 homes and businesses throughout Ryedale and the north of York. Locally based, we’re passionate about supporting our local area – helping businesses, local people and local events, for the benefit of everyone.
