Macclesfield’s Small Magazine with the BIG Circulation!

The local magazine for Macclesfield, Tytherington and surrounding villages.

An independent publication, proudly run by local people for local people since 2005, we connect local residents with the local community and local businesses in a way which is, “affordable, effective and popular”!

Different Doors Reached

(Over our Two Issue Cycle)

Whilst every colourful little issue takes your message directly through around 18,000 individual doors plus more besides, our new way of distributing over two issues (and consequently a minimum booking of two issues for business advertisers to reach our total delivered area) ensures that our magazine reaches directly into, by far, the biggest number of local homes and businesses of any other printed medium available.  See our Advertising section for more details.

  • "I highly recommend advertising with Local People. I have advertised in this excellent local magazine for many years and have enjoyed much exposure and business as a result. The magazine gives just the right mix of advertising, information, and human and local interest. I cannot thank Heather enough for her support and professionalism over the years"

  • "My favourite way to advertise locally. We’ve been with Heather and Local People for over five years, and always have a spike in bookings and visitor numbers after appearing in the magazine."

    Jonathan Richards Gawsworth Hall
  • "I moved to Macclesfield in 2016 and started my own business in plumbing.   A guy that I was working with suggested advertising in the Local People magazine as this is where he gets a lot of work from. I can happily say that being part of this magazine has helped my business grow and now I am working on recommendations from my customers, as well as still being in the magazine."

  • I placed a free ad in the last edition of Local People and it was a success having made the sale yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a friendly but very professional service. Local People is so informative and it is the first place that I look if I am seeking a local professional tradesman. Not to mention the articles which are also very interesting. Thank you so much."
