About Us

Your Go Local TeamGo Local! is an independent magazine and directory of truly local services for businesses and services around Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge, Greetland and Elland – the Pennine areas of Calderdale.

Go Local! was launched in 2005. The magazine aims to promote truly local businesses to local people –like yourself!

The magazine is run by me, Rachel, a local resident born and bred in Ripponden with help from Helen, who also lives in Ripponden. Both of us worked for large companies and love working for ourselves to get away from the office politics and the rat race.

We aren’t part of a franchise, we’re just a local independent business ourselves. We love running the business as we’re naturally nosey and get to find out what’s going on locally!
