We Made a Magazine!

Who are we?

‘We’ are Rona Simpson and Anna McGeachie – the two newest recruits to the small team here at the Gryffe Advertizer. It’s a funny thing… We didn’t know each other before, but I think it’s fair to say we are definitely friends now. It’s worked out very well actually … We’re the same, but different. With Rona’s background in magazines and publishing and Anna’s in marketing and customer service, coupled with a shared love of fashion (Anna – Rona not so much), food (definitely Rona), outdoors and all things beautiful, we make a great team. (Even if we do say so ourselves!) As it turns out, we’re at the same stage of life – both with small kids who have provided us with hilarious stories, shared tips (some of which you are sure to hear) and a keenness to get to work for a break.

Why did The Advertizer create a new magazine?

We already have The Advertizer in the area, which has been running for over 20 years. It is trusted, well-known and relied upon on a monthly basis to inform us of what’s going on in the villages, what the schools and nurseries have been doing, which pets require a new ‘forever’ home, as well as acting as a directory for all things trade and pretty much anything else one might need from the surrounding area. We want to build on that trust and give you a beautiful ‘coffee table’ magazine with features, interviews, reviews and a larger space to allow businesses to showcase their products and services, as well as giving readers the opportunity to see the human face behind the company name. Ultimately our aim is to give people an elegant, glossy, well-informed magazine to sit down with and take the time to read, while enjoying a cuppa…all for free!

What’s in it?

What can you expect from our first issue? Well…a cover piece on local actor and celeb Andy McAlindon, must reads on summer beautification and advice for the fashion-conscious male, as well as ideas for sprucing up your home, and what to do with the kids for the rest of the summer (no, not just putting them out in the garden).

We hope you enjoy our new magazine, and we would welcome any thoughts and ideas you have or if you’re interested in advertising with us, please get in touch by calling 01505 613340 or email: info@advertizer.co.uk
