Hello and welcome to Harborne, Edgbaston & Moseley Life – a hyperlocal newspaper produced at the heart of your community, where you can meet your kind of people.
Since our launch in 2014 we have cast our net into our 'Neighbouring Areas' and continue to be well accepted and supported by readers and advertisers alike. Publishing HEM Life has helped us discover that there are some amazing people with inspiring stories to tell - and they live not far from you.
We’ve set the bar high and had some great support along the way, including fellow journos Paul Raymer, Poppy Brady, John Duckers, Ross Reyburn and Richard Edmonds. Quality print by Iliffe, Cambridge, design by WD Design is exceptional and, the service by Self Select Licenced Distribution in Redditch is very professional.
HEM Life puts a premium price on that quaint and old-fashioned notion of a one-to-one conversation. We talk about family life, schools, the fortunes of high street traders and small businesses, the unsung heroes of volunteering and charity work, and highlight local sporting achievements - leaving the doom and gloom to the national media.
We firmly believe that a high quality hyper local newspaper has an important part to play in bringing communities together and we hope to continue providing a friendly platform for people from all walks of life to talk to each other – because "Connected Communities Can Achieve the Incredible."
