Working with Raring2go!
Raring2go! is aimed at families of primary school age children, and is published four times a year, usually just before a school holiday. It's handed out direct to families through the school book bags, plus through libraries and leisure centres, shops, businesses, attractions, hotels... AND it's also online with an interactive digital issue which is shared by the over 205 primary schools in their newsletters and on their socials. By working closely with our local community, the free family guide keeps parents informed, whilst supporting local businesses.
This edition of Raring2go! is created specifically for our local area and is therefore packed with relevant information for families with young children across Aberdeen City and the whole of Aberdeenshire. If you want to tell local families about your children's activities, do get in touch with me at If you want to tell local families about your children's activities, do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happily spread the word to over 10,000 young families.
PS: Thank you ALL for supporting us – our readers, our advertisers, the schools who tuck the magazine into book bags, the places who put each issue in pride of place for people to pick up a copy – we appreciate it! You help us to keep doing what I set out to do in 2007 - to help every family find the best places to visit, play, shop, eat and stay in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and to have FUN together and make lasting memories!
