Ed’s Letter

Rachel Taylor - Editor of Go Local
Welcome to the May edition, my favourite time of year with bluebells, lighter evenings and the promise of summer to come (I’m ever hopeful).

In this issue, we have more local news than ever before; from dog shows to local walks and the WW1 centenary to helping hedgehogs.

We also have pages of local events to keep you busy, history about Sowerby New Road and two lovely recipes to try supplied by Gimbals and the Larder Deli. If you have an event to tell us about, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Till June, enjoy!


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!”
