See you in Croydon

Yet another new Edition to our expanding Franchise business. Welcome to Eva who will be producing a Scallywag magazine for the parents of Croydon. Good luck with the new business Eva and welcome to the team.

Leek and Cheadle Gets new edition

We are thrilled to introduce our latest Franchisee – Natalie – who will be launching a new Scallymag for the parents of Leek and Cheadle and surrounding areas, in the Autumn. Looking forward to working with you Natalie and getting our magazine out to even more parents.

We’re expanding again!

We have a new edition launching in the next couple of months, to cover the area of Alsager and Sandbach, just north of Stoke-on-Trent. If you are in that area and would like to contact the new Editor, Kelli, about potential advertising or just to learn more about the magazine and its distribution, please follow the link to her own site above, and use the ‘Contact Us’ form there. I’m sure she would love to hear from you.

Changing Faces

We have mixed emotions this week as we say goodbye to Mel who has been editing the Scallymag for Halifax for six years now. Mel’s daughter, Ella, was a tiny baby when we first met in the Spring of 2008. Now she is growing up and has started school, Mel has been getting busier and busier with her other business in PR. We wish her every success for the future. I’m sure her business will just grow and grow,
However this change has meant we can now welcome Kate. Kate comes from a background in Journalism and, living in Brighouse, with a six year old son of her own, she was already a fan of The Scallymag and has jumped at the opportunity to take over the reigns in that area. Welcome to the team Kate. We’re looking forward to working with you. x


The first issue of the new Kirkcaldy Scallywag Magazine went to press just before Christmas, and the first issue of the Watford Scallymag has just gone to press and will launch in the next few days. Brilliant work by both our new Editors.

New edition for London

Welcome to Nancy, our latest Franchisee, who will be producing a magazine for Hampstead in the New Year. She is already working hard gathering information for the parents of her area and planning her first issue. I’m looking forward to seeing it.

More good news

Welcome to Sara who has joined us in Watford. Sarah comes to us with a background in teaching so we’re excited to see what she will add to the business as a whole.
Welcome Sara and good luck with your first edition in the New Year.

New Edition Launching Soon

We are very please to welcome Gail as a new Franchisee. She has taken on the area on Kirkcaldy in Scotland, where she lives, and will be producing her first issue in the next few weeks. It looks like it will be a bumper issue too, with lots of ideas for things to do with your family in the area, over Christmas.
Looking forward to seeing it Gail :-)

Our New Website

Welcome to the new website for The Scallymag and The Scallywag Magazines. As the business continues to grow and more Franchisees are taken on, we needed a website that was better laid out and easier for you to find the information you needed. I hope you find this helpful.
Each individual magazine now has its own ‘Contact’ form so you can get in touch with each editor directly. If you want to get in touch with HQ to discuss starting your own magazine where you live, please use our direct contact form here.
If you have any other comments, about the website or any other matter, you are welcome to add comments to this page. We would love to hear from you.
