‘I launched Living In Richmond, Kew & East Twickenham in 2006 with 2,400 copies. Now in its 10th year, it is a well-established and much loved part of the community. Its sister publication, Living In Barnes, East Sheen and West Putney was launched in 2009, and now the two magazines reach a combined 28,000 homes and businesses, covering Richmond, Kew, East Twickenham, Barnes, Mortlake, East Sheen and west of Putney.
‘I have lived in the Richmond area for more than 26 years and, before launching the magazines, was a journalist and non-fiction author. I absolutely love publishing my magazines and can’t think of another job I’d rather be doing. Through them I have met a whole new part of the community – people who run their own local businesses – who help to make the area the great place that it is. Many of these businesses are, like mine, small independents, who need the support of locals to succeed. I get lovely feedback from residents and organisations who enjoy reading the magazines and who are keen to contribute to its local feel.
‘I couldn’t produce these magazines without the help of a small but fabulous freelance team covering sales, design and admin.’
