Heron Publications celebrate 15th anniversary
No celebration is quite complete without cake and the team at Heron Publications cut into a large, tasty one on the occasion of their company’s 15th anniversary.
The independent, family-run business began life in the loft of the home of directors Mike and Helen Firth and now employs 12 people, based at its Enterprise House offices in Dronfield.
It publishes popular free local magazines ‘Twist’, ‘Dronfield Eye’, ‘Wings’ and ‘Active8’, plus the paid-for nostalgia periodical ‘My Kind of Town’.
Mike Firth, Director of Heron Publications, explained:-
“In the publishing world, people regard 15 years as long-term. However, we are always planning ahead and are forever forging new links with local individuals, organisations and businesses.
“It has been a real thrill to see our business grow and our magazines have become important threads in the communities they serve, being the brightest, most attractive publications around.”
It’s been a busy time for Heron Publications. Earlier this year they added an extension to their Dronfield offices, a development which has now enabled them to employ two more full-time members of staff.
They were also thrilled to be named the East Midlands Community Business of the Year in the 2017 FSB & Worldpay UK Business Awards.
Other recognition over the years has seen the local company receive two commendations in the National Magazine Publishers’ Awards.
