There is a UK-wide network of 40 local editions run by local editors (mostly mums) with over 800,000 copies distributed 6 times a year across the country. Until March this year there has been a local edition in Cheshire. Local editors now cannot get their magazine out as it is distributed by schools, nurseries, libraries. They have now created a digital issue which contains important and useful information to help families get through this difficult period.
