The Briar Crier™ is an independently owned community news magazine published by Margravine Media Inc.

The aim of the Briar Crier is to provide residents in Briar HIll and Green Briar with information on events and activities held at the community centres, as well as in the surrounding area. The magazine includes local 'good' news, and columns from wine expert Trent Mayers, Town Councillor Alan Masters, and Greys for Green. On occasion, we publish stories, poems, photographs, etc., contributed by Briar residents.

A copy of the Print Edition of the Briar Crier is delivered to every resident in Briar Hill and Green Briar, as well as select businesses and community organizations, including The Gibson Centre for Community, Arts & Culture, the New Tecumseth Public Library, the Museum on the Boyne, the Alliston Business Improvement Association, the Town of New Tecumseth's offices, and the County of Simcoe.


Briar Hill and Green Briar are adult lifestyle communities situated adjacent to the Nottawasaga Golf Course and the Nottawasaga Resort Inn just minutes east of Alliston.

Most Briar residents purchased their home and moved to the resort style community to retire. They enjoy the many amenities offered at the Nottawasaga Resort Inn and the daily activities and special events held in their community centres.

At present, there are 1,196 homes and condominium apartments in Briar Hill and Green Briar. New homes are presently being built in Briar Hill on a continual basis. Print circulation equals 2,100 (approximately 4,500 readers).
