Carnah acquires Horsham Pages North, Horsham Pages South and Southwater Life

Carnah, the specialist local magazine publishing company, is pleased to announce that it has acquired three magazines from Horsham Publications, including Horsham Pages North, Horsham Pages South, and Southwater Life.

Horsham Publications has been publishing the magazines for over 10 years, with Horsham Pages North delivered to 12,000 homes and businesses in North Horsham and Roffey, Horsham Pages South delivered to 12,000 homes and businesses in Horsham, Broadbridge Heath and Wickhurst Green, and Southwater Life delivered to 4,000 homes and businesses in Southwater. Dee Ryder, Gemma Gray, and Clare West, will continue to deal with client liaison, sales and distribution respectively, and maintaining the smooth running of the magazines.

Carnah is a well established local magazine publisher and currently publishes the Banstead Beacon, Cheam Clarion, Epsom & Ewell Eagle, Kingswood Village Voice and Tadworth & Walton Tribune. Richard Milbourn, managing director of Carnah, said: “I have been working in media and publishing for over 30 years since my first job at Reed Publications in Sutton, Surrey. Since I have family in Horsham, I am very excited to be publishing the only magazines in Horsham and Southwater to be delivered door-to-door and will be keen to maintain the community feel of the magazines.
“Carnah’s strategy is to publish quality local magazines that serve the local residents and keep everyone informed of local life. The magazines have no political affiliations and are open to anyone in the locality to contribute news, views and articles. There will be gradual improvements in design and content, and I welcome any feedback, comments and suggestions.”

Julie Maxted, director of Horsham Publications, said: “In the 10 years since taking over Horsham Publications in 2008, we have grown the business from one magazine to three, and increased circulation from 4,000 to over 28,000 homes and businesses. Carnah will use its experience and knowledge to grow the magazines and enable us to concentrate on our Pet Sitting business.”
