Petuaria Press is a magazine-style community newsletter for the villages of Brough and Elloughton in East Yorkshire. We report on local events, community issues and the stories of remarkable local residents and their achievements.
The printed magazine is published quarterly and is funded by Elloughton-cum-Brough Town Council. It is delivered door to door to over 5,000 homes and business in the HU15 1 postcode area. Copies are available in limited numbers from selected outlets in Elloughton-cum-Brough and a digital edition is sent to online subscribers.
Editors Justine and Duncan McMillan took over from Tony Barker in the summer of 2007 when he stepped down due to other work commitments. Tony had edited Petuaria Press since its launch in 1999, starting the magazine as a newcomer to the area and thinking that Brough could do with its own local newspaper.
Our regular format is eight A4 pages printed in full colour with occasional supplements or extended editions. The format and layout has been developed over time and Issue 38 in October 2009 saw a major overhaul of the design to celebrate the 10th anniversary edition of Petuaria Press. The format was overhauled again fro issue number 75 published in February 2019 with a move from four pages to the current eight page format and the inclusion of a limited number of advertisements.
Petuaria was the name of the fortified Roman settlement that existed on the site of modern-day Brough.
