Offstone co-owners Jane Pikett and Gary Ramsay said they were delighted to be chosen to work alongside NECC in developing the Contact brand.

Jane, who will edit the title, said: “We are looking forward to further developing Contact magazine and strengthening its role as an un-missable source of news, commentary and insight.”
