About Arrow Publications


Arrow Publications Ltd is local business which promotes ‘what’s going on’ in our communities. The business is owned by three women who are all committed to providing small villages in Doncaster with news and information relevant to them.

In 2005 Michelle Sidebottom published the first of many successful Arrow magazines, The Branton & Auckley Arrow. Recognising how difficult it was to find out what was going on in her community, Michelle thought it would be a great idea to have all the information in one place.  Julie Morrell, who owned the successful Hatfield Flyer and Carolyn Grant who had recently launched The Haxey and Westwoodside Arrow, joined forces with Michelle in 2008 to form Arrow Publications Limited and there are currently eight  magazines being distributed in and around Doncaster monthly.

Along with local news and information regarding events, clubs, fundraisers etc The Arrow magazines also include local businesses advertising their products and services which make it much easier for people in the community to find a local tradesman, financial advisor,  nursery or any other business they may require.

By providing high quality publications and keeping advertising costs as low as possible, businesses, small and large have an affordable way of reaching local people.  Producing a magazine that is interesting to read is both challenging and rewarding. The positive feedback from residents and local businesses is overwhelming and proves that Arrow magazines have a positive impact on both the community and local economy.

Community spirit is one of the most important things that make our towns and villages attractive places to live. Arrow magazines help to bring people together and act as a central publishing point for local news, events and useful contacts. If you have an interest in your community and have something you wish to share, please contact us.

“Arrow” magazines are supported by the local businesses that advertise in them, please support these businesses by purchasing their services.


We reach 31,000 homes & businesses every month & offer a range of advertising packages that suit all budgets.

Reasons to advertise with Arrow

The Arrow Publication magazines are a great way of keeping the communities they serve up to date with local events and news, as well as being a useful medium for targeted advertising for small businesses.  We have worked with Arrow for the last few years and have found them to be helpful and professional.

Since advertising in The Arrow earlier this year, I have had numerous, positive enquiries regarding yoga as a result. The magazine offers a varied balance of local news articles, information about local events, along with advertising for local businesses, which is why so many residents find it useful throughout our community. Michelle is professional, supportive and on hand to offer advice at any time. I would certainly recommend advertising in The Arrow.

We have now been using our friends at the Arrow for advertising for over a year now and consistently every month new customers are coming to us having seen our adverts in the Arrow Publications. We find them very helpful and accommodating and would happily recommend advertising with them.

The Arrow is a great way for businesses to engage with the local community. It's ideal if you want to promote your business and advertise offers or events. I advertised to raise awareness of my new venture Fitness Vault in Branton as the magazine reaches a large audience at a reasonable price. I also feel that people will notice my adverts more if I use the magazine as opposed to delivering flyers. I'll definitely be looking to use the Arrow in future as a way of promoting changes that will likely be of interest to prospective customers.
