Consett Magazine is both a print and online publication for the people of Consett, Co.Durham. Along with the full colour magazine, our online portal is designed to be a great place to discuss and comment on local news stories along with web exclusive blog posts and content for your reading pleasure.
The magazine is published by Firefly New Media, a local media company based in Middle Street, Consett. The aim of the magazine is to bring back the content driven publication with the objective to give people an interesting read with as much local content as possible. In the coming months, we plan to expand the number of pages to provide you with more thought provoking articles and interesting reads throughout the magazine. We look to support local businesses with our cost effective advertising designed to promote the budding entrepreneurs in the Consett area for the minimal of costs.
In recent months, you may have completed a survey which was conducted in Middle Street, Consett and on the web. The survey was carried out to find what people would like to read about if a new local magazine was published. We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey as the results were very interesting indeed. The interests and concerns found in the survey have been taken on board and we aim to provide a quality read for the people of Consett.
The publication will focus on relevant subjects like entertainment, employment, history, events, good news, and all matters of local interest. We invite people to contribute to the magazine with their own events, stories, photographs, or anything else of interest to you.
We hope that all of you will enjoy reading the first issue of Consett Magazine as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
