Why not become a member of Vocalise?

Vocalise belongs to Ashley Ward: we are run by and for the people of St Pauls, Montpelier and St Werburghs. We are a voice of the people, and that’s why you’ll see articles reporting on real local events which affect you.

However, as a local magazine, our funding options are limited:-

We could pack Vocalise with adverts... but we want to make this magazine about good, local content. Instead, we source advertising from local businesses and community organisations.

We could charge you for it... but we want this magazine to be for everyone.

We could try and secure grants... and in fact, that is how Vocalise began. But lottery grants are exactly that – a lottery. We want to be sustainable in the long-term!
