Welcome to Altrincham Today

Launching in 2014, Altrincham Today is now established as one of the leading hyperlocal media titles in the UK, and an accredited member of the Independent Community News Network.

Our daily website is the best-read news title in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, with well over 200,000 unique visitors a month and a social media community of over 50,000.

And our acclaimed quarterly magazine was the only hyperlocal title to be nominated for Magazine of the Year at the Regional Press Awards 2019, with the judges eventually awarding it a Highly Commended award and describing it as the “complete local community magazine with a touch of class”.

Altrincham Today is edited and published by David Prior. David was born in Hale and now lives with his wife and five children in Timperley. He’s an NCTJ-qualified journalist with 20 years’ experience, and has worked for the likes of the Press Association, Sunday Times and Liverpool Daily Post. He also edits the business news website, Prolific North, and can be found occasionally tweeting at @dmhprior.
