VIDEO: LYMM Life celebrated 20 years of publishing with an open top bus tour of the village with local Town Crier Peter Powell.
Peter, who feared Lymm village was “dying” 20 years ago, helped Lymm Life magazine celebrate two decades of publishing, hailing the special anniversary from the top of the open top double decker bus.
Peter, who has been the official town crier for Lymm for 25 years, was delighted to help the village’s free community magazine celebrate its 20th anniversary with an open top bus tour around the village centre, courtesy of Warrington’s Own Buses.
When asked what changes he had seen over the past 20 years,Peter, who is a local independent parish councillor, said he feared Lymm was dying at the turn of the century.
But thanks to the many hard working community minded people, local festivals and events and Lymm Life, he believed Lymm, as village, was now going from strength to strength.
Lymm Life was launched in March 1999 and soon became the official publication for the village, engaging in local community events throughout the year.
While many traditional print media have suffered from online competition, Lymm Life has moved with the times, engaging with social media as a sister publication to warrington-worldwide, which was also launched online 20 years ago, as the first independent online newspaper in the country.
