A new Nottinghamshire County Council magazine, designed especially for families, starts arriving in Nottinghamshire schools this week.

Family Life magazine is one of a trio of new annual publications which have replaced the quarterly County News and, following a revamp of the authority’s publications, aim to provide information in a more targeted way.

Family Life is being distributed via every County Council infant, primary and junior school as well as children’s centres, libraries, country parks, tourist information centres and places of interest/visitor attractions in the city and around the county

It is packed with articles to help families save money, stay active, find fun things to do and it also provides useful schools information.

Features in this issue include a pull-out-and-keep guide to what’s on across the county this summer, packed with more than 100 events and activities, real-life local stories on adoption and how the Council is helping some people get around independently using public transport and information on school meals and how to apply for a school place

Family Life is one of three new publications, the others being County Life – aimed at all residents in the county and distributed directly to homes earlier this year – and Your Life, which is aimed at older people and which will be distributed in the autumn.

Family Life is also available to download on the County Council’s website at
