Please send adverts & articles for March TCN by 14th February...
New cover June 2014

Welcome to Thornton - our thriving community located in the beautiful borough of Wyre in Lancashire, north-west England. If you are not familiar with Thornton, you can find us here.

Through our local magazine Thornton Community News (TCN) and this website, we support and inform the people of Thornton, providing details of local events and news, and helping to promote local businesses.

If you live in, or have an interest in, Thornton, don’t miss our
TCN magazine, which is delivered free to almost 8,500 homes in Thornton and Stanah. The magazine is full of community news and articles, plus adverts for local businesses and tradesmen.

Don’t forget our Hot News web page, because it’s YOUR page!  If you have urgent community news, perhaps if  you missed the TCN publication deadline for example, just drop us an email.  Maybe you have to make a last-minute change to your club meeting date, time or location - perhaps you want to publicise your jumble sale. Whatever the reason, for any kind of non-commercial news for Thornton, we have the place for it. When there’s no Hot News, you didn’t send us any!

Do check our recommendations page here, where TCN readers tell us about the superb service they  receive from local tradespeople. We all know there’s no substitute for personal recommendation and in Thornton we are so lucky to be well served by trustworthy, professional tradespeople who take excellent care of their customers. Our magazine is their  favoured place to advertise, so when you need  work doing, let TCN and our readers’ experience guide you to the right people!

Monthly message from TCN Editor:

As I write this, winter has finally arrived, the sun is shining and the frost is on the ground. Thank goodness it has stopped raining, the Christmas period has been horrendous in terms of rain and floods, but at least there is no damage to our village and the sight of the sun this morning reminds us spring is on the way and we are very lucky compared to others

A big thanks to all the people who helped us with our Christmas deliveries. I got loads of extra help and it meant we could get all the TCNs out nice and early to enjoy a Christmas break. I hope all our readers have had a peaceful time and are recharged ready for the New Year.

Lots of news and events for you this month; please, if you do use one of our tradespeople remember to tell them you saw their advert in TCN so that they keep supporting us and enabling our magazine to keep you informed about what’s happening in your area.

We still have our Facebook page, so please join and share anything you feel is helpful. Current advertisers are also welcome to use the page to advertise their business.

I have a recommendation this month for Mick Parker, plumber. Our reader told us:

1. He came same day to see the job and give a quote.
2. He came again on the day and at the time he said he would.
3. He did the job for the price quoted.
4. He was courteous and professional.

If you get good service from one of our advertisers please tell us, write it on our Facebook page or email us and we will spread the word!

Have a good February – see you next month! – Ed
