Ed’s Letter

Welcome to our double month summer edition!

Rachel Taylor - Editor of Go Local

The Summer issues are packed full of truly local events and information for you. With the Halifax Food Fest, the Piece Hall re-opening, Halifax Agricultural Show, Food on the Field and many other events, there’s certainly no excuse to be bored. We also catch up in our Ryburn mag with an inspirational local lady, Jodie Smith, founder of Sowerby Bridge Snails and in our Elland mag find out the details of the forthcoming Elland carnival.

We have all our regular features to enjoy too, so why not settle down with a cuppa and have a read through the mag online here?

The next issue will be out at the end of August after our summer break. As always, if you’re organising a community event then email us or click through our contact page here on the website with all the details and we’ll feature it for free.

Have a fabulous summer…


The Go Local story

Independent and proud

Go Local is an independent magazine and directory of truly local services for businesses and services covering Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge, Greetland, Stainland, Outlane, Lindley and Salendine Nook and surrounding areas.

Go Local was launched in 2005. The magazine aims to promote truly local businesses to local people – like yourself!

“The magazine is run by me, Rachel, a local resident born and bred in Ripponden with plenty of help from our small team.

Having spent the first 15 years of my career working for large blue chip companies, I now love working locally for myself and getting away from the office politics and the rat race. I enjoy using my 20 years’ of experience helping local businesses get the right message and ad for them; service, honesty and value for money are my key principles.

Go Local isn’t part of a franchise or larger group, it’s an independent business. I love running the business as I’m naturally nosey and get to find out what’s going on locally!”
