Looking after Local Lynx
The Local Lynx is a community magazine covering 10 villages in North Norfolk. It is published every other month and is voluntarily produced by village members and distributed to 1,200 households in these villages plus other venues such as local pubs, churches, tourist information offices and shops in the area. The readership is estimated as at least 2,000 people, plus the magazine is also available on-line at www.locallynx. co.uk and currently has around 300 on-line readers.
Until quite recently, all our production costs (mainly printing) were just about covered by the donations we receive from Parish Councils and PCCs, and by advertisements. But our advertising revenue has decreased over the past few issues.
Although our overall financial position is still healthy, we need to make up the shortfall. So we are turning to you, our readers, for a little help. Firstly, if you run a local business or service, please consider advertising. Secondly, we know that you value your Local Lynx and, if you would like to help ensure its long-term future, then please think about making a small donation. Six pounds a year would be £1 per issue; ten pounds a year would be a round sum, but please give whatever you feel is appropriate.
Our bank details for making a direct BACS transfer are below and will appear in future issues; or you may donate by cash or cheque. Please email lynxeditor @pobox.com to arrange this.
