Yesterday, we picked up a few copies of the Spring issue of Country Child from our printers, Remous, – literally hot of the press. We were all longing to see it and check out our biggest mag ever, at 52 pages.
As always, we’ve loved putting together this issue and have had great fun along the way. A couple of my favourite features are:
- Animals in education – a double page spread written by Melanie Cable Alexander together with wonderful photos taken by Millie Pilkington at Castle Court School
- a history of Mothering Sunday written by the Flower Farmer, Georgie Newbery which inspired Country Grandpa to join one of her courses
Candice and I had great fun researching mini-breaks and chatting to our parent panel about their favourite family-friendly places to stay locally. I’m definitely keen to try out a few last minute deals during the holidays.
This is the moment yesterday morning when the team got together to see the magazine and to agree the editorial for our summer issue. As you can see, our non-execs are there too – in the form of baby Victor and toddler Tom.
Today it’s our first day of distribution which involves my mother, our resident Country Granny Sue, and Candice driving and unloading 7,000 magazines across Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. This usually takes a few days.
We hope you manage to get hold of a copy and enjoy reading this issue. Our on-line version will be available from Monday next week.
We’d love to hear from you so please get in touch and tell us which is your favourite article.
