From Marianne...

“Since 2005, the Handy Mags have ‘bridged the gap’ between ‘ad-mags’ and larger, nationwide and countywide, lifestyle magazines to create the perfect medium to reach local people.

“Our two magazines—Handy Mag Ryedale and Handy Mag York—are trusted, well-established, local publications that have made significant contributions to their respective areas.

“Both magazines are distributed with Royal Mail to guarantee saturation in each area. Handy Mag Ryedale is delivered to Malton, Norton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley, and surrounding villages; whereas Handy Mag York is delivered to Haxby, Wigginton, Strensall, Stockton-on-the-Forest, Huntington, New Earswick, Earswick, Upper & Nether Poppleton, Skelton, Dunnington, and everywhere in-between.

“Our publishing house is based in Malton, North Yorkshire—so we know the area and have excellent connections with local businesses and the wider community. We are passionate about supporting and celebrating local life in Ryedale and York because we, too, are a part of that life.

“If you’re a business in Ryedale or York that would like to enquire about advertising, or a community group that has a notice for your community, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Businesses who would like more information on what we can offer can find out more here.”
