Everything Epping Forest to launch Harlow mag

Hyperlocal website Everything Epping Forest, launched by ex-Newsquest journalist David Jackman, is expanding with a new edition covering Woodford  and a colour magazine for Harlow.

The move comes a year after Archant London formed a partnership with Jackman. Since then the initial single edition Everything Epping Forest publication, covering Epping, has expanded to include separate titles for Buckhurst Hill and Chigwell, and also the Loughton area with some 30,000-plus copies now delivered door-to-door each month.

Now Everything Epping Forest and Archant is to launch a new Everything Epping Forest edition covering the Woodford area of east London next month and a brand new Everything Harlow monthly magazine in June.

Jackman launched Everything Epping Forest  in November 2008. The site now regularly registers more than 400,000 hits a month. In 2010 he launched Everything Harlow  – and now also runs a local news media service under the Everything Local News name.

Before launching the websites, Jackman had spent more than 21 years on local newspapers in west Essex - including the Epping Forest Guardian (previously the West Essex Gazette), Epping Forest Independent, and the then Harlow Citizen and Bishop's Stortford Citizen titles.

Jackman said: "I'm passionate about local news and local events and a firm believer that even the smallest snippet of news is worthy of coverage whether it is a local coffee morning or a report from a local club.

"I'm delighted Archant London is expanding our current arrangement with not just an additional Everything Epping Forest edition but also a brand new Everything Harlow title."
