Solent Life has “history”
Something old, something borrowed …
… and something blue
Solent Life has “history”. Here’s the story in a nutshell.
For nearly four years, Dan published a lovely magazine called Town & City. However, Dan wanted to focus on his photography, art and graphic design so approached Melanie who publishes Discover Magazine for South Hampshire. A partnership of minds resulted in a new title Solent Life.
However, you might recognise the name Solent Life and you’d be right. Solent Life was a successful lifestyle magazine until 2015 when it was tragically sabotaged by a new rogue owner and subsequently closed within a matter of months. It was sadly missed by loyal advertisers and nothing has replaced it – until now. So, Town & City is Solent Life rebranded and Melanie’s aim is to revive and restore Solent Life back to its much admired former glory!
