Strengthening the local community, promoting local businessses and uniting local people

North Weald Village Life was launched and published by us in August 2005. 

We have continually published our magazines monthly, never missing a month including throughout Covid.

In March this year, due to popular demand, we launched our new Epping Town Life magazine.

We are committed to supporting local businesses by providing a platform for targetted advertising in well-established local magazines. Our mission is to actively promote and showcase products, services and successes of businesses within our community.  Through strategic and tailored advertising campaigns, we aim to amplify the visibility and reach of local businesses, providing support, increase awareness and driving growth within our area

When businesses advertise with us, we can offer an additional value-added support by providing complimentary editorial support alongside your advert.  We can offer the opportunity to have featured editorial news coverage showcasing your expertise, fundraising, staff achievements or similar.  This provides an additional avenue to engage our readers and create a deeper connection between your business and our community.  Our goal is to provide comprehensive support to our advertisers.

Every issue of our magazines has a minimum of 50% editorial which can include local news, events, fundraising, features and editorial.

This ensures our magazines are read, informative, useful and retained



The booking deadline for advertising is 20th of each month.

The magazine is published and distributed the first week of every month.

Our magazines are A4 size, which provides a good size advertisements for our advertisers and ensures readability



We welcome editorial written by local people only.

The deadline for submitting editorial is the 20th of every month.

Celebrating 17 years of North Weald Village Life

The August issue celebrates 17 years since I first introduced a new local magazine - North Weald Village Life magazine.  It has gone from strength to strength over the years. It was always A4 size, but used to be black and white but now of course it is full colour and has so much more in it.  Can you believe that one of my very first advertisers - still advertises with me 17 years later!!!
