Scott Dawson Advertising is launching a brand new feel-good glossy publication for the Lancashire district of Hyndburn.

LIFE:STYLE Magazine plans to promote the positive side of Accrington and its surrounding areas appealing to tourists, business investors, heritage, music and culture fans.

Hyndburn MP Graham Jones, pictured, said: “I am thrilled to see a lifestyle magazine promoting the area and the very hard work going on behind the scenes by my office, the district council, and the many brilliant community groups we have here.”

Mr Jones added: “There is a thriving business community in Hyndburn and I hope members of this  community will step up to support LIFE:STYLE magazine and help get the positive aspects of the area out to a wider audience.”

The twice yearly magazine will showcase local businesses, shops, cafes and restaurants, and concentrate on promoting civic pride.

Said a spokesperson for Scott Dawson Advertising, which will produce an autumn/ winter and spring/summer edition: “Like other areas of Lancashire Hyndburn also enjoys the benefit of bustling town life with both major retail and food chains and small independent shops and restaurants, picturesque parks and villages and breath-taking countryside – which is perfect for running, cycling and hiking enthusiasts.

“We wanted to produce a magazine to share all that is wonderful about the area.”

LIFE:STYLE Magazine promises to explore and encompass all aspects of the area’s rich ethnic diversity.

The first issue will feature a lively dinner debate between four Hyndburn men of Irish, English, Pakistani and Polish descent, about their varying views on Family Values.
