In 2012, Andrena Carden-White was looking for a new and more fulfilling opportunity and approached Shelly and Scott about their magazine. The decision to work together was made quickly and The Vine for Leighton Buzzard began in April that year.
Her second magazine, covering MK South villages up to Fenny Stratford and Bletchley, followed in October of the same year.
Fast forward two years and the decision to start a third magazine for Aylesbury was made with the first issue being launched in August 2014.
In 2015 Andrena's areas were rebranded to Bee Local Magazine to fit with her other business services under the Bee brand but still working as sister magazines
The Vine magazine began with Shelly Nesbitt and Scott Nightingale sitting around a kitchen table discussing ways to start a business they could manage around their lives and family commitments and so in 2007 they launched The Vine Magazine in Dunstable.
The publication began as a small 28 page magazine, with a few local advertisers and great content, and proved both popular and useful with the local community and so was followed shortly after by The Vine Villages edition.
Slowly but steadily The Vine has grown and proved successful for Shelly, Scott and their advertisers and in 2014 they launched The Vine in Luton taking their circulation to 30,000.
The Vine, a local magazine since 2007...
The Vine Online...
In 2015 The Vine Directory was launched.
While publising in print remains as popular as ever, there was no denying the growth of the internet and all the benefits that it brings.
The idea behind The Vine Directory was to carry on the ethos behind The Vine Magazine - only this time at the tap of a keyboard or click of a mouse. The website provides useful local content to attract readers thereby placing local businesses, quite literally, at their fingertips!
The aim was to provide readers with a convenent online tool for finding the local information and the services they require and by tapping into this growing trend our readers and advertisers get the best of both worlds.
