Editorial

We designed GEM Magazine to be the go-to magazine for food, wine, fashion, beauty, motoring, health, gardening, heritage, culture, house and home for Harborne, Edgbaston, Moseley, Solihull, Sutton and Birmingham City Centre.

GEM magazine is compact, and this means that it can be read in one sitting and easily carried from one place to another. So the magazine can be passed on so easily from one reader to another. The editorial content constitutes 40% of the magazine and all advertising copy is clearly marked or identifiable as such.

We aim to inspire, inform and entertain our readers with original thought-provoking content, illustrated through attention-grabbing design and written by local writers from Solihull, Birmingham and surrounding areas.

We connect our readers to with their community, so our What's On and Social GEMs pages display events happening in and around Birmingham and Solihull, and our Little GEMs serve to inform our readers of events in the past or the future that are relevant to their local area. Our food and drink pages will ensure our readers can entertain in style!

We regularly feature movers and shakers in Solihull, Birmingham and the West Midlands, giving our readers a behind the scenes peek at what makes these successful individuals tick.

Dear Carole (GEM Editor)

I just wanted to let you know that I was at a meeting last night planning the launch meeting of our Campaign for Regional Broadcasting Midlands.

Anyway one of my committee colleagues works in Five Ways and your magazine is delivered to the reception of where he works, so we ended up discussing your magazine and saying how fabulous it is with such upbeat articles about Birmingham.

Plus fabulous articles about the creative people who live and work here such as Natasha.

Thanks for making such a positive publication for Birmingham.

Keep up the good work.
Lots of love
TRACEY
