Ed’s Letter

The heating’s on so it must be Autumn!

Rachel Taylor - Editor of Go Local
This month, due to popular demand, we’ve introduced local news items pages with more in depth information than we have space for in the What’s on listings. Please let us know your feedback and if you’d like to submit any topics of local interest, then just email over the details before our next deadline of 9th October.

Features this issue, include an update from the Halifax Food Assembly who are all about buying local and a new regular article ‘Barklife Beagle’ (not just for dog lovers) plus all our regular items too.

The winner of the Halifax Comedy fest tickets to see Daliso Chaponda is Myra Whalan, well done!

Till next month, 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!”
