Focus Magazines The local magazines for Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Brecon & Talgarth – Events, News and Advertising

Focus Editions: February 2019

Love is in the air this month because, of course, it’s February and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Will you be doing something to celebrate? We have lots for you on the subject of Valentine’s Day and Wedding Planning, so do have a leaf through our featured articles and adverts for some inspiration! Naturally there’s lots to keep you entertained if love and Valentine’s isn’t quite your thing. As always there’s plenty going on in and around our area, so make sure to update your diary using our events calendar.

We are very fortunate that lots of businesses, old and new, like to advertise with us in the pages of the Focus. We enjoy chatting with our advertisers each month and getting their feedback about the readers who contact them directly from having read our magazine. If you own a business and you are interested in advertising with us, it’s now easier than ever to browse the price and size of adverts and make a booking with us online. Visit our website where you’ll find an advert calculator, answers to lots of FAQ’s and information about other services we can offer from online advertising, graphic design and website design.

Of course our magazine is nothing without the invaluable local news and events that you, our readers, let us know about from month to month. We are always on the look out for a good, engaging story and we are very keen to promote charitable events and fundraisers that involve and benefit our local community. Do get in touch with us either via our website or the old fashioned way, by picking up the phone and chatting to myself or Pete. We’re only too happy to speak to you.

This month’s Abergavenny edition cover photo comes from the wonderful floral arrangments by Love Lily. Do have a look at the article on Page 32, because Valentine’s Day or not, who doesn’t love a beautiful bunch of flowers?

And this month’s Crickhowell & Brecon edition’s beautiful cover is a detail from ‘Frosty Morning Tree’ by Martin Truefitt-Baker. Read more about his work on page 15.

Enjoy the read,
