Welcome to our community

Our two free magazines are delivered to 20,000 homes across Chorlton, Whalley Range and Didsbury in South Manchester. Thousands more are picked up from shops, libraries, cafes and other places.

We rejoice in the things that make our communities special. We like a village vibe; we want culture and colour, with interesting high streets, full of independent traders.

We’re proud of where we live.

Let’s hear it for butchers with plastic grass in their windows; cafe owners who give their coffee machines names, and great builders that want three sugars in their tea. Money spent local stays local – we vote with our feet as well as our cash.

When Community Index drops on your doormat, take a look: find out what’s happening in your neighbourhood and join in. Keep the magazine handy and support the local independent businesses that advertise with us. Meet new people, try new things.

Let’s keep South Manchester interesting.
