Subscribers to Yorkshire Ridings Magazine have still not been updated about the future of the publication.
No January/ February copies have been mailed out and subscribers have been told it is “unlikely” there will be a copy for March/ April.
When Prolific North contacted the publisher two weeks ago, we were told a letter would be sent to subscribers “within the next couple of weeks” clarifying the situation.
However, the company has confirmed that a letter had still not been sent. And when Prolific North contacted the magazine’s managing director, Natalie Christopher – the daughter of Blackpool owner Owen Oyston – she refused to comment.
A link to the Yorkshire Ridings Magazine website goes to a page reading ‘Sorry, this shop is currently unavailable.’
Christopher is also the MD of The Lancashire & North West Magazine, which is believed to be carrying on as normal.
Last year, she announced that Yorkshire Ridings Magazine would be published once every two months, rather than monthly.
Both titles were then withdrawn from the Audited Bureau of Circulations (ABCs), which independently monitor magazine performance.
Shareholders of the titles include Coronation Street actor Bill Roache and former broadcaster Stuart Hall, who was released from prison in December having served a sentence for historic sexual offences.
