My name is Carolyn. Welcome to my website.
The Local Word Ltd, produces The Wokingham Word and The Berkshire Break… much loved free magazines for local residents. The business is completely independent and run entirely by myself - so if you want to get in touch, you’ll know exactly who you’re dealing with.
I moved to Wokingham 14 years ago because I really liked the town and considered it a great place to live and bring up a family. I run my business from home where I have three amazing boys who are growing up at an alarming rate, and a husband who – like me – does his best to keep up with the demands of modern family life.
How it began
I started The Wokingham Word in 2004 because I could see a gap in the market for an informal but good quality magazine for Wokingham. My background isn’t publishing or journalism, I simply try and produce a magazine that I would like to receive. It has evolved considerably over the years but has always remained an honest, unpretentious, reliable magazine “produced by a resident, for residents”. May 2016 sees the launch of The Berkshire Break, taking the same successful format to neighbouring areas of Berkshire.
