Forres Local cover 2019

In February 2019, Forres Local acquired the rights to continue publishing the popular Forres Focus magazine.

It was published quarterly by Nicky Slater, who started the Lossie Local 10 years ago, and then started a Forres version in 2014.

After five years, Nicky decided to concentrate on the Lossie Local and handed over the reins of the Forres Focus to us.

Focus on local

So later in 2019, The Forres Focus will relaunch as Forres Local, a companion to the website, with the same focus on local news, local events and local people. We hope to increase frequency to monthly, and guarantee that every page spread will have editorial content.

Producing content for the new magazine will be Forres Local editor, Marc Hindley, who has worked for years as a journalist with local newspapers and magazines, such as Scottish Field, Executive Magazine, The Lighthouse, and many more.

If you would like to contribute or advertise in the magazine or the website, email Marc on or call 01309 255055.
