The biggest-ever Hertfordshire Life is in the shops now.

The magazine also comes complete with a free Pub and Inn guide to the county.

Hertfordshire Life is also proud to announce a further success - its biggest-selling issue was this April.

The April issue sold 18% more than the previous best seller, which was January 2007.

Publishing company Archant Life has invested substantially in distribution growth so readers can easily find a copy of Hertfordshire Life in premium supermarkets, garden centres, and newsagents.

More than 80 branded racks have been placed around the county to ensure widest-ever availability, and the magazine is on sale in branches of Marks & Spencer and Waitrose.

No copies are wasted, with plans to sample 33,000 back copies of Hertfordshire Life this year through letterboxes, at supermarkets, and at local shows and events, including the Herts County Show.

This ensures maximum value to magazine advertisers and introduces the magazine to new readers.

Copy sales for the first quarter of this financial year are 28 per cent up, compared to the same period last year, and average monthly sales of the magazine grew by 12 per cent from 2005 to 2006.

Clare Bourke joined as editor of Hertfordshire Life on May 14, having previously been editor of the St Albans Review and Observer Series.

Clare said: "I am delighted to be joining such a strong magazine that really gets to the heart of life in Hertfordshire.

"We are so proud of the 180-page June issue, packed full of informative stories from our towns and villages, inspiring interviews with people from the county, plus the very best local food, fashion, property, interiors, gardens, motoring, and countryside coverage you will find in Hertfordshire."

Former editor Robyn Bechelet, who is now publisher of Hertfordshire Life, said: "We continue to invest in producing the best-selling magazine in the marketplace.

"This investment, of course, includes our own personal enthusiasm for producing a magazine that truly reflects the remarkable talents and beautiful places in the county.

"We are all proud to be involved in the county of Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire Life."

Suzanne Heaven, regional managing director Archant Life (South East & East), said: "Hertfordshire Life magazine has gone from strength to strength. Our commitment is always to reflect the very best Hertfordshire has to offer."
