Brighouse & District Heritage Newseum issue number 4..........       Update..

One month into issue number 4 of my Brighouse & District Heritage Newseum local history and nostalgia magazine, already the first 250 copies have sold out and reprints will be on order in the morning.



Starting with what was a wishful thinking 'I will give it a go' kind of a project the number of sales on each issue have increased on the four quarterly issues published so far. After writing seven published local history books and 32 years as the nostalgia writer for our local newspaper my new project is working well.

With a growing number of subscription payments coming in (£20.60 this purchases four posted copies) is helping to safe guard the magazine's future. Already readers are asking about the possibility of a binder for them and can it be expanded up from the initial 20-page cover to cover publication. Binders are likely to be coming soon and the magazine has now been expanded to 28 pages cover to cover. With one, just one page set aside for advertising. Whilst this aspect is slow at this early stage, I know it will gather momentum.

Some may ask: Can such a magazine be sustained each month without repetition? I have been researching our local history and nostalgia for over 45 years and taught adult education local history classes for 30 years. On that basis the pool of material I have available will not dry up. Guest writers are now involved - the future looks good.

There is no such word as can't .... It is better to at least try and fail, than not try at all because as time goes by it will be too late to even try.
