Ed’s Letter

Welcome to the July/August edition!

Rachel Taylor - Editor of Go Local

Welcome to our bumper Summer issue packed full of truly local events and information. With the Halifax Food Fest, Elland Carnival, Halifax Agricultural Show and many other events happening over the next two months, there’s no excuse to be bored.

We have all our regular features to enjoy too including local history, recipes, local news and puzzles so why not settle down with a cuppa (or cooling drink) and have a read through the mag?

The next issue will be out at the end of August after our summer break. As always, if you’re organising a community event or have a news item of interest then email us the details and we’ll feature it for free.


Have a fabulous summer…


The Go Local story

Independent & 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!

Local Values

“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!”
