Council to deliver magazine across the borough

March 30, 2013 by  

Hertsmere Borough Council is set to deliver copies of its printed magazine to homes and businesses across the borough to give residents an overview of council news for Spring.

The Spring 2013 edition of ‘Hertsmere News’ is about to be distributed across the borough over the coming weeks. The focus of this season’s magazine is around planning for the future and protecting the past of Hertsmere, with articles on changes to benefits, council tax and recycling, as well as a story on celebrating the centenary of a local rose garden.

The magazine features a welcome letter from Morris Bright, the leader of Hertsmere Borough Council and a section of the magazine shows readers who their local councillor is and how people can get in touch with them, via telephone, email or social media.

Communication with residents is becoming an increasingly important focal point for many councils across the UK and many local authorities choose to produce a quarterly magazine to pass on important information, as well as give residents updates on events and amenities that the council has to offer. Magazines like this also offer local businesses the chance to reach a wider audience by taking out paid advertisements to give their companies exposure to an entire borough.

The magazine is 16 pages long and has been produced using full colour printing. Potters Bar residents can either wait for their copy to be delivered, or there is also the option to read the magazine online on the website of Hertsmere Borough Council.
