Welcome to Honiton & Village News – the free monthly magazine
by the community for the community.
Here at H&VN, we have always strived to be optimistic, positive and cheerful. We even managed to get through 2019 without ever mentioning the ‘B Word’. But suddenly life is very different. In spite of the beauty of our countryside and the warmth of the Devon sun, we cannot ignore the dark cloud that suddenly hangs over our heads. COVID-19 is here. Without a doubt, it will change our lives forever.
The future is unclear for all of us at this juncture, but here at H&VN we are committed to publishing the magazine every month. When we launched last July, we outlined our ethos “to celebrate our incredible community, enable good local communications, and to support and inform all our residents, businesses, charities, groups and clubs” – and indeed that is now more important than ever. But we are also realistic. At the time of writing, most of the editorial team are in isolation, many of our advertisers are now closed and we have no idea how distribution will work in future. But we are already looking at ways to resolve these issues and please rest assured – we will do our best to ensure that the magazine continues. Being particularly keen to support our readers who are unable to leave their homes, we are also launching a delivery service by post. The magazine will remain free but there will be a charge of £1.25 per month to cover p&p. If you are interested in subscribing to this, please call Charles on 07939 723102.
We hope that you enjoy this edition. We have strived hard to get the balance right – offering supportive information about the pandemic, whilst also celebrating all that is good and happy in our community.
Copy deadline is the 16th of the month preceding publication. Please send your contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would prefer to contact us by post, our address is 66 High Street, Honiton, EX14 1PD.
First published in July 2018 by Honiton & East Devon Communities Voice CIC, (a not for profit organisation), Honiton & Village News is financed purely through advertising, fundraising and donations. We have decided to make the magazine free to ensure the widest circulation.
Can You Help Us?
Advertise – With a monthly circulation of approximately 5,500 and ever-increasing website hits, our magazine is an effective way to reach a local audience. Prices are also highly competitive – see our rates card for details.
Make a Donation – The response to Honiton & Village News since our first magazine has been enormously encouraging, but we still have to budget carefully to secure the magazine’s future – and none of the volunteers claim any expenses. Donations are therefore greatly appreciated. Collection boxes are located in The Paper Shop in New Street, The Little Shop of Seasons in the High Street and also with Carol on her stall in Lace Walk. Alternatively, cheques made payable to Honiton & East Devon Communities Voice CIC can be posted to us at 66 High Street, Honiton, EX14 1PD.
Volunteer – We are always looking for new volunteers to help in all areas. Could you help with distribution? Are you a competent proof-reader or graphic designer? Would you like to join us as a Village Correspondent? If that’s you, then please do contact us. You will receive a very warm welcome to our team.
We are indebted to all those who enthusiastically help us in this venture. Without such support Honiton & Village News would simply not exist. To all our contributors, advertisers, sponsors, suppliers, retailers and readers – a resounding THANK YOU.
