Readers' Panel

The BHLife Magazine Logo

If you read BH Life and have any thoughts about how we can develop the magazine to suit your needs, then we want to hear from you.

As a council we care about what you want and are continuously looking to better the services that we offer.

The Panel:

Our aim is to hold one panel meeting every year. The panel is a great way for you to tell us what you like and don't like about BH Life. However, in order to generate the feedback we're after, we need volunteers to read the publication, get together and discuss it!

We’ll be asking various questions relating to:

  • Readability
  • Clarity
  • Quality
  • Design.

What does it involve?

Prior to the Panel meetings we’ll send you the latest three editions of BH Life. It is helpful for you to flick through naturally, as this is useful for identifying the items that spark the most interest.

The sessions comprise of around eight to ten fellow readers and we try to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to speak. 

To show our gratitude you’ll be presented with a shopping voucher thanking you for helping us with our research and development. 


If this sounds like something of interest, please telephone: 01202 451435 or email:|  and provide your:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone Number
  • Email Address.

We are always keen to hear the opinions of people from different cultures, ages and backgrounds. This is why we collect various data to ensure that all people are being treated fairly and are being represented. If you agree to be a Panel Member we will ask you to complete an 'Equality Monitoring Form'.


All information we receive will be treated with care and will not be passed onto other departments. Once you have supplied us with your details you’ll be added to our Readers’ Panel database where you could be randomly selected to attend a meeting.
