Nene Local Magazine has been in production now for over two years. The magazine begin in Thrapston and in January 2015 began to expand along the River Nene.
The readership area of the magazine is Northampton to Peterborough and runs along the river, incorporating all the towns, villages, businesses and local news along the way.
The inaugural Facebook page is Welcome to Thrapston, which is widely used by the local community. The admins post news about local businesses, and give shout outs to all the Nene Local advertisers but what keeps the community reading, liking and commenting is the variety of posts – including job vacancies, events, local awards and even lost cats – it’s a real community hub!
