Borough Life

Borough Life is delivered three times a year to 130,000 households in the borough. Each edition is packed with news and features about the council and its public service partners as well as community activities and upcoming events.


Spring 2022

The nation will come together in June to celebrate The Queen’s 70 years on the throne so it felt fitting to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with a very special edition of Borough Life.

We’ve included a guide for everything you need to know about the extended bank holiday weekend including an events guide for the borough as we’ll be hosting a series of free, family events. There’s also tips for celebrating at home, from fun activities for the young ones to royal recipes which will be perfect to take to a street party. Plus, we hope you enjoy some royal nostalgia as we hear from local people who remember the coronation all those years ago.

Meanwhile, there’s a handy guide to keeping up with your household bills and information about what local support is available if you need a helping hand. We visited the brilliant Fur Clemt to find out what local communities are doing to support each other.

There’s also an in-depth look at the cultural impact the Women’s Euros will have on the borough, as we countdown to welcoming the UEFA tournament in July.

We also shine a spotlight on Leigh’s brand new facility for supporting young people with their mental health.

As ever, there’s more exclusive content on our Borough Life Plus page, where you can enjoy even more features in addition to the magazine.

We’d love to hear what you think of the magazine. Please email Borough Life with any feedback or if you have an idea for a story.
