Ripples partners call time on a fantastic experience

After 11 years of publishing Ripples Community Magazine, Adrian Young and Graham Fry have decided the time has come to retire from the business.

They are now looking for a buyer who recognises the community and commercial value of the magazine and the potential for its further development on print and digital platforms.

They anticipate interest from community-based publishers as well as established commercial publishers. They are aiming for a handover at the end of this year.

They created Ripples in 2009 when the economy was still reeling from the Global Financial Crisis of 2007- 2008. It was immediately welcomed in Fairford, Lechlade and surrounding villages and has been ever since.

Following the coronavirus emergency, Adrian and Graham have been heartened by the ongoing support of readers and advertisers, underpinned by renewed enthusiasm for sustaining the local community and business.
