Thornbury Magazine

Covid-19 response

The editors are committed to producing the Magazine and it will continue to be posted to our website. We will restart distribution of printed copies as soon as circumstances allow.

So that current advertisers can maintain a presence and generate leads, we are giving them free coverage until we return to distributing printed copies. Remaining pre-payments will only be applied to future issues once distribution of printed copies has been re-established.

We are also taking on new advertisers who want to be with us for the longer term and are prepared to show their commitment by making a prepayment against future advertising. Their payment will be credited to their account and their advert will be carried free of charge until distribution of printed copies has been re-established.

If you wish to modify your advertisement to reflect your current circumstances please let Stan Rodliffe know.
