Alderney makes the cover

Post by GD on Wed 09 Mar 2011, 6:20 pm

Alderney has featured on the front cover of The Good Travel Guide, a magazine which is distributed to a readership of 150,000.

The magazine also featured a double page spread on the island. The image for the front cover was taken by Helene Matthews who won the Visit Alderney - Alderney Brochure Front Cover Photograph Competition for 2011.

Joanna Parmentier, Marketing Manager for Visit Alderney said: "For Alderney to be featured on the Front Cover of the Good Travel Guide is fantastic news, the publication is not only circulated to a readership of 150,000 but is also distributed for free at the at The Times Destinations Holiday & Travel Shows in London and Birmingham.

These shows are two of the largest travel shows in the UK exhibition diary. In terms of the value to Alderney, this type of exposure in financial terms would be very costly, the fact that the publication loved our front cover enough to feature it on the front of their magazine speaks volumes for the photographer Helene Matthews and is a credit to the Alderney Brochure / Visit Alderney. Also the fact that the cover was complimented by an article within the magazine and that the shelf life of the publication is three months, adds even more value."

Alderney has also been in the papers of late, an article appeared in the Daily Mail entitled - 'Mystery of why the idyllic Channel Isle of Alderney is in desperate need of newcomers.' Written by Ross Clark, this article appeared in the January and talked about Alderney looking for more people to come and live here.

The Times also featured a short piece by Matthew Parris in his column 'My Week' entitled - 'Did the MoD ever take a holiday in Alderney?' which appeared in the paper in February.
A journalist from The Sunday Mirror will be visiting Alderney in early March to write an article on Alderney for the paper. (from CTV)
