Living Life Magazine logo LivingLife Magazine

As local residents to the area, business partners Andrew & John decided to create LivingLife in 2018 as they knew there was a massive opportunity to help the local residents of Shefford & Clifton by way of informative and interesting news articles, and also by connecting local businesses, trades and services to this thriving, local community.

With a background in marketing, design, photography and videography, this free monthly magazine was the perfect solution.
