UPDATE: July 2020:
COVID19: We were unable to print and distribute the April issue and uploaded a front page cover only. Since then we have increased our online presence, publishing online only from May and are offering up to 60% off advertising to help get things moving for businesses and of course to continue connecting our loyal readers to recommended, trusted and reliable businesses through HEM Life (albeit less pages)
Moving Forward: As soon as we can distribute and print we will however, we would like to keep our readers updated on all the great things that are happening within our communities, and to keep them in the loop as to who, where and what recommended, trusted and reliable businesses are providing community needs within the current health and safety requirements in Harborne, Edgbaston, Moseley, Five Ways, Hockley, Selly Oak, Bournville, Bearwood, Kings Heath, Kings Norton, Stirchley, Longbridge, Quinton, Barns Hill, Halesowen, Black Heath and Cradley Heath.
Thank you and stay safe
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 a community together. Our aim is to continue providing a friendly platform for people from all walks of life to talk to each other.
