THE new Chase – the third to be given away free inside your Rotherham Advertiser – is in stock in cafes, bars, restaurants and shops throughout the borough.
The response to the new look magazine has been so good that, as well as the 20,000 in the paper, we’ve upped the print run and the number of stockists across Rotherham, meaning that if you miss the giveaway you can still pick up a copy from pubs, restaurants, shops or beauty salons.
We’ve been really pleased with the reaction from readers and advertisers and would like to thank you for your support as we strive to make the magazine bigger and better than before.
It doesn’t seem long since we were all moaning about the cold weather but since we were last with you we’ve had a lovely warm spell – before we know it Christmas will be here!
In this issue, as well as our regular beauty, motors and arts articles, we have a feature on the new Rotherham town centre George Wright hotel – a fine example of how an old and once disused building can be restored for modern use and add something new to an area hoping to bounce back from years of struggle. Add that to fantastic buildings restored on the High Street, plus the lovely minster and All Saints’ Square area and, when Forge Island is developed, Rotherham really could be onto something. Let’s hope those quick to criticise the town centre are proved wrong!
We also have features on the hugely successful Chantry Brewery and plans for the historic stately home Firbeck Hall.
On top of all this, there’s the usual mix of picture spreads, reviews and news, this summer’s beauty must-haves and an interview with Rotherham artist Chris Slater.
As usual, we welcome your views and opinions on the magazine, what you would like to see in future editions and, if you have something you think would make a feature in Chase, then don’t hesitate to get in contact by emailing andrew.mosley@rotherhamadvertiser. co.uk
We’ll see you again in August when plans will be in full swing for this year’s Rotherham Show – it soon comes around. Hopefully, the sun will still be shining too.
