MBC News Magazine

The MBC News is a free, community magazine for the Milltimber, Bieldside and Cults, area and is a voluntary organisation which has been in existence for over 40 years. The magazine is compiled and professionally published by Gazette Magazines and a team of volunteers and is funded by advertising.   MBC News is distributed free of charge to almost 5,000 homes and businesses in the MBC area and also to homes in the growing, new development at Countesswells.   It is published 4 times each year and is delivered by a team of volunteers to each household in the area as far as is possible. 

The editorial team are always keen to receive contributions from residents, be they articles about local events and activities, community issues, historical connections, poems or just humorous stories. We have a section on local events so that residents can read what is going on and if you are planning something, be it a one off event or a regular activity, please let us know.

We are always looking for local, quirky cover photos too!

Advertise in the MBC News

The MBC News Magazine is entirely funded by advertising revenue and so we are very appreciative of the large and small, local businesses that support us year on year. The magazine is a valuable resource for residents to find local services whether that may be a painter, an estate agent. a pharmacy or even a good school.

If your business is interested in advertising in the MBC News Magazine to reach 5,000 households in the Cults, Bieldside, Milltimber and Countesswells areas please get in touch.  You can find out more details about our pricing and available sizes below. 

Thanks for your contributions to issue 202. The next copy deadline is April 1st 2024 for inclusion in the May 2024 issue, 203.

MBC News Volunteers

A small team of volunteers compile the MBC News Magazine which includes editing, advertising, local event listings, distribution and invoicing not to mention management of our webpage & social media. It is professionally published by Gazette Magazines, printed then 125 volunteers of aged from 15 to 80+ deliver the magazine door to door throughout Cults, Milltimber, Bieldside and Coutesswells in all seasons. Our delivery team appreciation party is an enjoyable fixture in our social calendar. New homes in the area are being occupied weekly and the number of copies distributed grows steadily.

We are still urgently looking for a volunteer for the Easter Ord area. It is a rural delivery round which requires a car.  We also require more volunteers for the Countesswells development. If you feel either task would be of interest to you, please get in touch with us at mbcndistribution@cbmcommunity.org.uk
