Your village magazine, the Wilbrahams’ Warbler, has added yet another award, the bronze in the ‘low frequency publications’ category. Monday night, 23rd July, was the 19th annual Cambridge Building Society Community Magazine Awards and local editors, publishers and staff from The Cambridge Building Society came together to celebrate the hard work carried out by groups, charities and colleges to provide their local community with interesting and relevant news and information. This year 32 magazines entered with a combined circulation of almost 190,000.
The Cambridge’s Chief Operating Officer, Andy Lucas, acted as compere for the evening and presented the bronze award and a cheque for £50 to Martin Gienke, joint editor of the Warbler with John Bramwell and John Torode. Andy said: “It was great to see so many entries this year, including quite a few new magazines. There was yet again a huge variety of magazine styles and clearly there’s still a strong demand for good quality, printed communications in our communities.
This was the third award the Warbler has won, silver in the Cambridge Building Society Community Magazine Awards last July and first place in the National Parish Magazine awards last November.
More details will be in the Autumn Edition of the Wilbrahams’ Warbler due out on 1st September.
