*** UPDATE 2019 ***

I’m a bit pressed for time so haven’t updated the full site (although much of the information is still relevant).  Main things to note for this year:

FORRES FOCUS: I’m afraid I took the decision last year to discontinue The Forres Focus Magazine due to time constraints.  If anybody would like to take it on please get in touch.  I’d be more than willing to share my knowledge, templates etc.  It would be ideal for someone wanting to earn a modest extra income working part-time from home.  All you need is a computer.  I started with zero experience so it can be done!

LOSSIE LOCAL:  This year I’m planning to produce a Spring issue (out early March), Summer issue (out early to mid June) and an Autumn/Winter issue (out mid October).  If you’d like to place an advert or submit some community information please get in touch at least a month prior to publication.  All prices remain the same, and any profits will be donated to charity. 


Welcome to The Lossie Local and Forres Focus Magazines; community magazines for Lossiemouth and Forres.  Before you start browsing here’s a quick guide to the site:

About.  Click on this tab to find out more about the magazines.

Advertising.  If you’re thinking of advertising head over to the ‘Advertising’ tab, where you’ll find prices, copy deadline dates and advertising guidelines. 

Community.  If you’re a member of a community group or club, and would like to publicise any information either free of charge or at reduced rates, then take a look at the ‘Community’ tab.

Previous Issues.  The magazines are first and foremost hard copy.  In the past I’ve managed to get previous issues online – see issuu.com and search for either The Lossie Local or The Forres Focus.  Time permitting I’ll try to get current issues up, but can’t always guarantee this will be possible.  If you’d like a copy of the most recent edition please get in touch with your address and I’ll pop one in the post.  

If anything isn’t quite clear or you have any questions at all then please don’t hesitate to email or call.
