Latest issue

This is our latest issue of Essentially Local magazine – where we promote local business.


I’m certain you’ll enjoy this latest edition of Essentially Local, whether you read it in print or digitally. As usual, the magazine is full of useful information, a fantastic competition, some great offers and of course, it’s the best place to find a local business.

Getting Active

One of my favourite offers is from aquaparcs at Willen Lake. It’s so easy, as a matter of fact, all you need to do is quote DONS20 before 3rd May and you’ll get a 20% discount.  Equally good is the Happy Bodies offer which will give you two hours of FREE personal training.  With this in mind, I feel a very active summer in front of us! I can’t emphasise how important this is with the rise of Type 2 Diabetes.  Obviously, this won’t affect everyone but take a look at pages 14-15 to find out how to reduce your risks as well as where and how to get support locally.

Going Green

There is also a green, kinder to the environment theme.  The hidden gem of the month is Bucks Star for its organic, vegan and locally produced beer as well as their Growler Swap bottle reuse scheme.  We, certainly, have to commend George Thomson who set up Charity Recycling MK.  He began by trying to recycle coffee pods and incredibly he now raises thousands for Willen Hospice and Cats Protection through recycling all sorts of wrappers.

Get Advertising

Now, remember we deliver to residents and business owners of north Milton Keynes, parts of Towcester, Wolverton and surrounding villages who love to read the magazine to find useful local information.  Unsurprisingly over 70% of the population prefer to read magazines and newspapers like ours and 61% take action. Therefore, if you run a small business give us a call to find out how you can advertise.
