Cedrick Jackson called from Tasburgh to say his new magazine had just been delivered. It’s wonderful and both he and his wife really enjoy reading it. Full of interesting content and useful contact details for local businesses, he described it as ‘spot on’.

I enjoy crosswords and was pleased to see it but didn’t complete, which is why I was eager for the answers. Please continue with the crosswords if you can, regular would be good! And we thoroughly love getting Village People. Informative about our own area and interesting articles. Congratulations on the recognition of your success.

Just wanted to let you know how much your Village People publication is enjoyed in our household.

I much appreciate receiving “Village People”. My wife and I live in Mulbarton and love it. We have been here for two years now having moved from Stratford on Avon and we certainly made the right decision.

Village People is a very informative magazine with local information available for all sorts of local businesses. It includes deals for local pubs and restaurants and we have often been surprised at the amount of lovely pubs which are very local to us, but which we wouldn’t have known about without such magazine resources. Friendly publishers also who go out of their way to help.

Yes, we really like your little magazine ‘The Village People’ and generally read it pretty thoroughly. It even helped to put us in touch with an old friend we hadn’t been in contact with for over twenty years! We saw his ad in there.

Just wanted to say how I enjoyed reading this edition of the village people which I picked up at a garden centre. The work that goes into it is very worthwhile and makes it an extremely informative read and must also provide a significant boost to the local economy with the local businesses featured. I am sure the FSB and trade orgs must be impressed too. Fascinating to read about some local and sometimes unusual businesses which otherwise would struggle to reach so many readers. Very encouraging also that a printed publication which is targeted with interesting editorial features can both exist and also thrive in this climate where more and more is shifting to online media. No mean feat and testament to your hard work and quality magazine. Keep up the great work and I look forward to reading the next one when it is published.

I really enjoy your magazine, it is passed on to me via my sister who lives in Kenninghall – it is very good to know what is going on in the area.

There are many things that I like about Village People but the Village Wanderings walk is the page I first turn to.

I have much appreciated it when you have included our notice in past years as it makes such a difference – so I am keeping my fingers crossed that you can include our notice in your magazine again this time.

“I’m just dropping you a line to say the ‘Village Wanderings’ page is a lovely feature of your magazine. My wife and I enjoy the walks very much.”

“I was just about to send you an email to thank you for the very nice Notice Board entry for our Model Railway Show – so, many thanks for this, much appreciated. Then I just took a ‘phone call from a Diss number, and the caller’s first words apart from ‘Hello’ were “I’ve just seen the advert for your Model Railway Show in Village People”…..What can I say?!”

“Flattery notwithstanding, the Early Spring issue seems even better than your usual – an exceptional range of topics covered, and a really nice balance. No wonder it’s so popular!”

Being a new resident to south Norfolk I really enjoy having Village Magazine delivered to my door and how it directs me to various local services.

It’s bright, cheerful and full of interesting articles too. Essential reading and it’s all delivered free of charge!

Martin Ward

Just received the new issue of Village People. You do a wonderful job and your mag is not just beautifully done but stands out significantly from similar publications I have seen.

Village People looks really good and it is nice to get something free through your door that is useful.

A very BIG thank you for including details of Tibenham’s book sale in Village People.

It has certainly been very effective and the books are piling up!

Many thanks for a great little magazine!

Thanks for the copies of Village People, it’s a great magazine. We want one where we are!

It’s a magazine that stays in our house much longer than any other.

Village People is often kept for future reference rather than being consigned immediately to the recycle bin.

People we speak to keep the magazine and use it as a directory.

Congratulations on an excellent magazine. It is so informative and interesting. We have already used 2 of the advertisers with very satisfactory results and are about to contact a third.

As the director of a play going into production at a new location, I was very pleased to be told that ‘Village People’ may be able to print a free article about the production. Wymondham Players have been performing at the Central Hall for decades and moving to a new venue was an anxious time for us.

In Wymondham, we distributed our yellow boards with the new venue indicated, but on the whole they were restricted to Wymondham. So to have the opportunity to inform the catchment area beyond Wymondham, i.e. the ‘Villages’ and all 14,000 of these rural households, was a huge bonus for us.

Apart from the actual task of writing the piece for the magazine, the whole exercise could not have been simpler. Ample guidance was given when requested by Lily and the piece and a photograph were simply sent by email.
We have had many positive comments already from people who have seen the article in Village People magazine which we all agreed was very well presented.

Director, Wymondham Players
