Issue 36 Out Now!

Not long after I started working at MOOR, I had to write the welcome for the Christmas issue and I remember setting myself the challenge to do as much of my Christmas shopping as possible in The Heatons. I didn’t do too badly. With the exception of certain ‘must-have’ toys for my children and a […]

Issue 35 Out Now!

In this issue of MOOR we launch a new regular feature about local individuals who have changed career – sometimes quite dramatically.  The years before I can retire still seem to stretch out ahead of me (no matter how middle-aged I feel) and though I have no plans to hang up my MOOR hat just […]

Issue 34 Out Now!

Probably due to our own childhood memories, August always has an air of holiday about it. Whether you have children off school or not, whether you are going away on holiday or not, this time of year still owns a breezy relaxedness.  It is a great time to enjoy your local area by rediscovering some […]

Issue 33 Out Now!

MOOR makes no secret of the fact that it was initially conceived to encourage the good people of The Heatons to shop locally and use local service providers wherever possible. Today the magazine is well into its sixth year, and although we are no longer in the height of recession, with as many independent businesses […]

Issue 32 Out Now!

The problem with household ‘to do’ lists is that once you start making one you realise there is far more to actually do than you’d planned on doing! This issue of MOOR is a little bit like that. We’ve put together loads of advice and tips to help you kick start your home and garden […]

Issue 31 Out Now!

Spring may not be quite here yet, but there’s more than a whiff of love in the air in this issue of MOOR. To start you off there’s a special eight page wedding feature (from page 12) packed with advice, tips and an array of local suppliers to make planning your big day a little […]

Issue 30 Out Now!

Let me tell you about something that happened to me the other day. But first, in order to interpret the story you need to know two things: firstly that I live near the station and secondly that when I’m on my own I walk fast (it’s the only exercise I get so I try to […]

Issue 29 Out Now!

MOOR Magazine is heading towards its fifth birthday. It was set up (with support and encouragement from The Four Heatons Traders Association) right in the middle of the recession at a time when small businesses and traders were struggling to keep their heads above water and many local town and village centres were finding their […]

Issue 28 Out Now!

The long summer holidays are upon us and whether you’re a stay at home parent with weeks with the kids stretching out in front of you, or you just want to make more of the time you do have with your children during the sunny (hopefully) days ahead, we’ve got some great ideas. Kick start […]

Issue 27 Out Now!

Early in June, a close friend of mine and her family will be moving back to The Heatons after three years of living near the sea in Kent. Now, truth be told, when she moved I was pretty envious. Like lots of people, I’ve always wanted to live somewhere sunny by the sea. And yet […]

Issue 26 Out Now!

Can you feel it? The fresh energy in the air, a little bit of an extra spring in your step, the ability to do things a teeny bit faster as you shrug off the winter go-slow? Yes spring is here. And if you are feeling a bit renewed, or you’ve got the inclination to get […]

Issue 25 Out Now!

This can be a tricky time of year: not many of us enjoy the long wait for spring to arrive, the Christmas credit card bill has arrived our New Year resolutions have failed, leaving us drained of the optimism we’d had welcoming 2014 in just a few short weeks ago. But February is actually a […]
