City Kids is 10!

With the launch of The Green Issue 2024, we celebrate our 10th birthday!

Well, well, well, who would have thought that we would still be here 10 years after creating our first edition of City Kids Magazine. I always look forward to the spring issue which is The Green Issue, filled with optimism and promise and to celebrate 10 years is unbelievable!

When we started, there were no parenting apps, a few parenting websites and Instagram was just getting started. Sadly, there were many more print magazines which have disappeared from the shelves over the last couple of years.

Building a magazine was a totally new path for me – I had never worked in publishing – but I knew that there was a gap in the market for a magazine which talked to me; sharing all that London has to offer for families and giving me information on schools and nurseries in West London. Now, we cover London and the Home Counties and write about so much more: food, interiors, fashion, podcasts, holidays and lots of finds that we love.

We want to thank all those who have picked up the magazine and told us how much they’ve enjoyed our content. We also want to thank all the advertisers who have trusted us to share their campaigns. Without you, and your faith in us, we would not have survived massive rises in paper costs, a pandemic, or been able to grow like we have. A special shout out to Caroline Haye who has been by my side, designing City Kids since day one. I literally could not have done this without you.

So here we are, The Green Issue 2024 and 10 years to celebrate!

We hope you enjoy reading this issue.
