COVID-19 : A NOTICE TO OUR ADVERTISERS
As you know, we published the April edition and got it out to whoever we could despite a number of our usual distribution outlets being closed and a number of people being wary of picking up publications. Since that time we have thought long and hard about what to do with the next few issues.
We have been very proud of the loyal following we have built up from readers, distributors and advertisers since we launched the magazine in July 2019 and the messages of support we have received have been very encouraging.
However, we rely on volunteers to create the magazine and on local shops and other places to distribute the copies. Overall though we rely on our advertisers as without them there would be no magazine at all. We are now faced with the fact that the volunteers who produce the magazine are hampered by being in lock down, the distributors are largely closed and we do not feel it is fair to ask companies and local organisations to support us through advertising when they are struggling to keep their businesses going. It is therefore with great regret, and even sadness, that we have decided to suspend the publication of H&VN temporarily until the situation improves sufficiently for us to ensure we can get the magazine out to our readership safely.
I will contact you again once things become easier and we feel in a position to start publishing again, which we hope will be in the very near future. In the meantime out best wishes to all of you at this difficult time.
With many thanks
Lyn on behalf of the team
