About Us

At What’s Around we believe in supporting local businesses and services, bringing our community together.

Our glossy full-colour A5 magazine comes out at the end of each month featuring community news and upcoming events, local walks, puzzles, stories, recipes and more…

We have updates from the Library, Museum, Health Centre and local constabulary and our Community Board and What’s On pages tell you all about this month’s events, group meetings and charity fundraisers. This is complemented by a variety of interesting articles on everything from money matters to caring for your garden.

Residents enjoy receiving our free magazine – they read them, keep them and use the businesses who advertise within them.

In the last twelve months we have also grown our Facebook and Twitter audiences dramatically and find that our readers love to engage with us online and keep up to date with all the latest news and events each day.

We use our own distribution team to hand deliver our magazines through letterboxes in Ibstock, Heather, Ravenstone, Packington, Normanton le Heath and Swannington plus areas of Whitwick and Hugglescote.

We also have copies available for pick up at key points in surrounding areas including Measham, Coalville, Donington le Heath, Coleorton and Staunton Harold.

And finally we have the latest digital version online along with back copies for the last few months.
