Ed’s Letter

Welcome to the June edition!

Rachel Taylor - Editor of Go Local

As I write this, the Overgate Garden party has just had a sunny and successful day. Let’s hope this continues for other outdoor events planned; the Classic Bike Show, Overgate Lanterns on the Lake, the Millbank Owl Hunt and Halifax Food & Drink Festival, to name just a few. We’ve details of all these and more in the What’s On Guide.

You may have noticed the increasing number of life saving defibrillators around the valley but do you know where they are and what to do? Check out P7 in the Ryburn mag and cut out and keep in your wallet.

This month we have a feature from an initiative close to our hearts, the Halifax Food Assembly – a local initiative where you can buy local food direct from the producers, a wonderful idea. Read more in the mags.

The winners of the Guys and Dolls tickets from last issue’s competition are Barbara Slade and Jean Greaves, well done!

… Until next month, enjoy the start of 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!”
