Island Life and Islander magazine forced to halt production

It is with great regret that, having investigated the logistics of printing, collecting and distributing our publications in this current extreme situation, we have been left with no option but to cancel the April 2020 editions of Islander and Island Life magazine.

We have come to this tough decision after facing the strong possibility that if we were to go ahead and print the publications, we might then be faced with all transport being stopped.  That would leave us with the scenario of getting the magazines back onto the Island but then of going into lockdown and being unable to distribute them. There is also the fact that with so many of our outlets being closed, we simply would not have the customers to pick them up.

From a purely moral standpoint, we are unwilling to commit advertisers financially in such an extreme situation, for advertising which would arguably prove to be ineffective. These are tough times for everybody, but we will come through this as a country and I sincerely look forward to getting back to 'business as usual' in due course. In the meantime, may we send you our warmest wishes.

I have been using Island Life magazine for advertising my local business for nearly 15 years. The magazine supplies me with a constant trickle of new customers and keeps my regular customers informed of new lines, season to season. 

- Jane Wenthorpe

I am a small local business and thus my advertising budget is limited. I find that the Islander magazine is affordable and it seems to be well read across the Island, I get several people mention the magazine to me and especially my advertising.
