As Bromley borough residents, we wanted to launch magazines that inspired, informed, entertained and educated the local community. Life In…Orpington and Life In…Bromley became those magazines.

They offer a unique mix of community and lifestyle articles, are easy to digest with their ‘dip-in, dip-out’ format and are a popular go-to source for information that celebrates all things local. We have a growing team here at Life In… HQ…

Meet The Team


With over 20 years’ experience in journalism, Lauretta is publisher and editor. She has a keen eye for double spaces, loves Interiors and, when she’s not busy working, enjoys mini getaways and day trips.

Nicky heads up design and knows what works in catching people’s eye! She puts a great spin on the magazine’s style, ensuring it’s eye-catching, imaginative and interesting and she’s a dab hand at creating amazing adverts for advertisers.

Assistant editor Steve is a dab hand at proofing – and has saved us from many a typo! He’s also chief puzzle page sub and contributes regularly to some of the lifestyle features including the ‘A closer look at…’ features.

James is the man that balances the books. His other talents include speaking two languages and being able to touch the tip of his nose with his tongue. James loves nothing more than getting lost in a good book, especially if it’s history or language related.

Tara, Zeenat and Dawn are the magazine’s distributors for Orpington and they ensure the magazines are distributed to both households and pick-up points in and around the town. No issues are wasted either – any magazines that remain in the pick-up points are collected and distributed to households.

Isabelle holds the fort when it comes to admin, social media, research and just generally being a great office assistant. Now that we’ve got her, we wondered how we managed without her! Isabelle loves theatre, her cat Cookie and taking artistic photos.

Finally, Freya and Milo are the company’s mascots. They specialise in play-fighting, long days of snoozing and being obsessed with their feather and bell toy.
