20 Years thanks to all of you
Celebrating 20 years of the Felixstowe Flyer magazine
Each month we aim to give you tips on the best way to market your business. This month we are celebrating 20 years of the Felixstowe Flyer magazine. This was the very first Flyer Magazine we published back in 1997. Since then the Flyer magazines have gone from strength to strength now publishing, as well as the Felixstowe Flyer, another seven editions. None of this would have been possible without the support of our loyal advertisers and our readers in each of the eight areas we cover; Felixstowe, Ipswich, Kesgrave, Woodbridge, Colchester, Brightlingsea, Bishop’s Stortford and finally Brightlingsea. Our free community magazines can only be as strong as they are because of the wide mix of interesting stories, the professional trades people who regularly advertise with us, the experts in their field we have each month who take time out to offer their advice to our readers, the chefs who provide us with their recipes and of course you the reader for not only reading and commenting on our magazines both in print and online but also for sending us your news and events to publish. This is what makes a community magazine so vital because it’s packed full of interesting material which tells you what’s happening, where and who’s involved in the area where you live and work. We hope you’ll forgive us just this month for a bit of ‘trumpet blowing’ on behalf of the Flyer magazines and especially our Felixstowe edition. Like many businesses we’ve been through the tougher times and we’ve also seen others go through the same. Together we’ve been able to keep moving forward, building our businesses together. You’ll also notice that it’s not often a month goes by where we’re not helping another business to celebrate their milestone anniversaries too. Which just goes to show if we all pull together and help each other we can continue to proudly wave the flag for our towns and villages where we live and work.
Last month if you missed our Advertising Tips we were offering you a word of caution.
