As Bromley borough residents, we wanted to offer 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 popular go-to sources for positive information that celebrate all things local. We have a growing team here at Life In…Magazines’ HQ.

Meet The Team


With over 20 years’ experience in journalism, Lauretta is editor of Life In Orpington. She has a keen eye for double spaces in text, 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 some of our advertisers.

Assistant Editor Steve is a dab hand at proofing and he’s also pretty nifty at compiling the monthly puzzle page! When he’s not busy spotting typos, he likes nothing better than tinkering on his piano and chilling out watching a great movie. 

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.

The distributors
Tara, Zeenat and Dawn are the magazine’s distributors and they ensure that Life In Orpington is distributed to as many places as possible in and around Orpington. You’ll be pleased to hear that we don’t waste any copies; when we drop off the new magazines at pick-up points we collect old copies to distribute to households.

Office heroes
Isabelle holds the fort when it comes social media and staying on top of posting relevant stories – and promoting our valued advertisers! Debbie’s got everything covered when it comes to
admin, research and helping with sales, while Olivia (who’s on work experience) is a whiz at researching and is experimenting with writing copy.

The VIPs
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.
