Valley Life Magazine Connecting local businesses to local people!

Valley Life Magazine

Now in its 12th year, Valley Life Magazine is an established member of the community. It is an informative magazine packed with interesting editorial features as well as a welcome guide to shops, cafes, restaurants, products and services available in and around the Upper Calder Valley.

Valley Life offers outstanding advertising opportunities and real value for money- particular if you compare it with any other media- such as local and regional newspapers. Furthermore, the quality of content and feel of Valley Life ensures a shelf life several times that of a newspaper and is more likely to be retained as a reference until well after the following issue appears.

As well as advertising, Valley Life incorporates a significant amount of regular editorial features and is owned and run by Helen Rushworth.
