A COMMUNITY ASSET
The Village Voice was started in 1995 as an A4 newsletter, delivered in the Tideswell area by enthusiastic members of the local community association.
Down the years, slowly but very surely, it has developed into an informative, respected and in-demand monthly. The first major step was a change to A5 booklet format. The number of pages grew steadily to 20 and upwards, printed in black and white.
The Village Voice distribution widened, filling gaps and taking in more and more villages. By now, in addition to Tideswell, coverage stretches to Cressbrook, Foolow, Great Hucklow, Little Hucklow, Litton, Litton Mill, Peak Forest, Wardlow, Wheston and Wormhill. Copies are placed in cafes, pubs, shops and holiday lets. An electronic version is offered.
An experienced new managing editor took over in the latter part of 2018 and that led to accelerated change. Layouts were revamped and content revitalised. Commercial printing in full colour replaced in-house mono production. Print numbers were increased by 20%, extending the circulation area. Since, requests to receive emailed digital copies have taken off.
