I recently visited the Museum of London’s excellent (if gruesome in places) exhibition of items from Scotland Yard’s Black Museum, connected with infamous crimes. One of the displays was about the Great Train Robbery of August 8th, 1963.
Village Matters magazine launched in November 2013. There was tremendous local demand from residents not in the delivery areas of Sunbury and Shepperton, so we thought it sounded like a good idea to start a third magazine.Village Matters is distributed to 4000 homes and businesses around Laleham Village, Shepperton Green, Littleton and Charlton Village. It will carry local stories, history, facts and community notices as well as a regular update on news from Shepperton Studios.
Advertising rates have been kept to an affordable level. The distribution area is one of few shop fronts. Local small businesses often working from home need a place to be seen. Village Matters and the other Matters magazines offer that shop window to local residents enabling small businesses to get their message across and build business on their doorstep.
We welcome suggestions and your own local stories so do get in touch.
