I took over Grantham Now! Magazine from Richard and Andrea Coppin in November 2018. I met them both whilst walking my dog Harold in the park. We became friends and the rest is now history!
Although publishing a magazine is new to me, I have a lot of experience in administration and communication albeit it within the public sector. I worked for the NHS in various roles for 16 years; my last position was Support Services Manager for the Mulberry NHS Trust. I worked for Lincolnshire County Council for eight years as Senior Administrator for the Youth Offending Team South. I have worked at Grantham and Kesteven Girls’ High School and my last employer was Grantham College where I worked for 10½ years. I was an NVQ Assessor for Management, Team Leading and Business and Administration and, for the last 5 years, I was the PA to the Chief Executive.
My aim is to continue to produce a community magazine that is well respected throughout Grantham. My website designer is currently adding features on my site so that all customers who advertise in Grantham Now! Magazine will be advertised on my website as well as in the magazine at no extra cost.
I have reviewed advertising costs for the magazine which are now competitive with other similar publications in Lincolnshire. Please contact me to discuss advertising in Grantham Now! Magazine as there are reductions in costs for businesses/companies who agree to advertise on a long-term basis.
