Advertise your Christmas and New Year events in TCN magazine
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:

Welcome to your November TCN. Next month will see our final edition of 2015. As usual, it’s a joint December/ January edition, which gives my fantastic volunteers a chance take a rest for Christmas. I’d like your help to make it the biggest of the year, so please send us your articles/ events/local news (by email when possible) and we will do our best to feature them in the book. TCN is for Thornton people so we’d love your contributions.

I’ve been thinking about running a recipe of the month feature, so if you have any original recipes which are copyright free, please submit them and we will share them with our readers. It would be great to get a few festive recipes in next month. We have previously also featured some fantastic poems from our readers, so if you are a budding poet why not send something through and whenever we can we will feature your poems too.

Advertiser recommendations - TCN wouldn’t be possible without the support of our local businesses who choose TCN to show their advert. Let them know it works - please tell them where you saw their advert and when you get good service please let me know and I will share your experience with our other readers. You can email me at the address on page 2 or you can join our Thornton Community News Facebook page and contact me that way.

Your input is what sets TCN apart from the commercial advertising magazines, so get on board and support us!

Keep safe this bonfire night and I’ll see you all again in time for the festivities! - Ed
