A COMMUNITY ASSET
The Village Voice was started in 1995 as a newsletter, delivered in the Tideswell area by enthusiastic members of the local community association. Tideswell is the Peak District's largest village.
Down the years, slowly but very surely, an independent The Village Voice has developed into an informative, respected and in-demand monthly. The first major step was a change to A5 booklet format and the number of pages started to grow. Distribution widened, taking in more villages and filling gaps.
By now, in addition to Tideswell, coverage each month stretches to Cressbrook, Foolow, Great Hucklow, Little Hucklow, Litton, Litton Mill, Peak Forest, Wardlow, Wheston and Wormhill, all within a five miles radius. Copies are placed in cafes, pubs, shops and holiday lets.
A new managing editor took over in the latter part of 2018 and that led to wholesale change. Layouts were revamped and content revitalised into a lively mix of news, reports, features, photos and advertisers' messages. Commercial printing in full colour replaced in-house black and white production. Print numbers were boosted and the circulation area extended. Since, requests to receive emailed electronic copies have taken off.

32 pages ~ full colour ~ 3,800+ estimated readers ~ around 1,900 print and digital circulation ~ door-by-door delivery ~ free issue
