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.

The next copy deadline is July 1st 2021 for inclusion in the August 2021 issue.


The MBC News Magazine is entirely funded by advertising revenue and we are so very appreciative of the small, local businesses that support us year on year. If your business is interested in advertising in the MBC News Magazine to reach over 4,700 households in the area please get in touch at mbcnadvertising@cbmcommunity.org.uk.

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.
