Everyone involved is a volunteer. The management steering group (Alan Page, Clare Street, Angela Yates, Patricia Kavanagh Brown, Tony Burton, Gerri Burton and Carole Perks) drives the magazine forward.
~ ALAN PAGE took over as managing editor and team leader of The Village Voice at the start of 2019. Alan had moved to Buxton 10 years earlier and on to Tideswell, taking a keen interest in the village's fortunes. An award-winning journalist and skilled graphic designer, he proceeded to build a top career at international advertising and marketing services agencies. More or less retired, Alan is media relations manager for Buxton Football Club and a frequent guest speaker at societies and business seminars.
~ Having taken early retirement from Manchester Metropolitan University, where she was a senior lecturer, CLARE STREET is responsible for the magazine's distribution policies and logistics: the interaction machinery. Tideswell resident Clare streamlined the entire process in 2020 and co-ordinates doorstep despatch.
~ Administrator is ANGELA YATES, previously looking after advertisers and accounts. Angela upwardly revised the advertising stance of The Village Voice, making customer support a priority and improving income streams significantly. Now, Angela deals with any admin and related support. At work she cares for adults with learning difficulties in Staffordshire Moorlands.
~ PATRICIA KAVANAGH BROWN helps out with financial records. Dublin-born Patricia and husband Nigel retired to Tideswell in 2018, after long careers as chartered accountants in the City of London. Also involved with finance, that is, assisting with raising revenue, is TONY BURTON. Security consultant and former police chief inspector Tony lives in Little Hucklow.
~ With the magazine going to Tideswell's neighbours – a further 13 main locations – GERRI BURTON connects with teamsters and organisations in the outer villages. Business owner Gerri is married to Tony (above). Assisting with group communications and editorial sources is Cressbrook's CAROLE PERKS, former book designer and publisher.
~ Social media monitoring and input are going through retired creative writer EDDIE VOX, not part of the steering group.
