We are delighted to announce the launch of Grow South Devon, a brand-new stand-alone magazine which will shine a spotlight on all that South Devon has to celebrate. With our relentlessly positive approach, we will be highlighting the stories of individuals, organisations, charities and industries who are making a positive difference, producing growth within the local economy or finding solutions to some of the challenges that are being faced in their communities.

Having launched Grow Exeter in October 2017, we have gathered momentum, interest, commercial support and an audience who we love. We are particularly well known for the fresh injection of energy, accountability and positivity that we bring to the local media mix and, with the same energy, accountability and positivity, we look forward to launching into South Devon.

Launch plans

Starting with our May edition, Grow South Devon joins Grow Exeter in our portfolio of free monthly magazine titles, as well as a number of other publications that we produce on behalf of clients of ours. It will also have dedicated Facebook and Twitter accounts where followers can stay up to date with inspiring and feel-good content from the area. Regular content will also be published on so add that to your bookmarks!

The magazine will be delivered to almost every business address in Dawlish, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Totnes as well as being available in multiple high-footfall locations within those towns.

As a strategic part of this launch, we have been speaking with key local stakeholders and would particularly like to thank TDA and South Devon College for their support, warm welcome and collaborative approach. We look forward to strengthening both these relationships and many more.

Strategic appointment

Furthermore, we are delighted to announce the landmark appointment of Leigh-Anne Biggs who will head up Grow South Devon from a commercial point of view. Leigh-Anne joins us with a wealth of media experience and marketing knowledge and we look forward to a bright and successful future working together to build a strong commercial foundation for our presence in South Devon.


Daniel Frye, Grow CEO, commented, “We’re excited to see what the future holds for us in South Devon. We’ve been planning and exploring this for some time and, if the initial appetite that we have been met with by local businesses and residents is anything to go by, then we have a bright future indeed ahead of us in South Devon.”

Llew Nicholls, Grow CCO, added, “Having consulted with many key players in South Devon, we’ve heard loud and clear that they are crying out for a positive and fair media platform for them to use and be proud of. We believe that Grow South Devon is just such a platform. Leigh-Anne joining our team is a real win for us and the timing couldn’t have been better. She will complement our already strong team in producing something for South Devon businesses and residents to be really proud of.”

‘TDA congratulates the Grow team for their highly successful magazine within Exeter and welcomes the new South Devon version. We look forward to working with Grow over the coming months and the new South Devon edition is symbolic of the growth occurring around Torbay.

Alan Denby, Director of Economic Strategy at TDA, said: “We’ve seen how the Grow team has worked with businesses across Exeter, highlighting the potential of businesses in and around the city. With investment increasing, Torbay and the local business community have similar ambitions and we’re excited to work with Grow to show the potential of our naturally inspiring Bay.”
