What our advertisers say


Advertising in Village People really works – but don’t just take our word for it!

At Village People we are brimming with pride that our magazine has generated significant new business for our advertisers.

We wanted to share their experiences of working with us, and we hope their comments will give you the confidence to follow in their footsteps and give us a call on 01284 788623 or email [email protected]

We are a local company which has been trading for 22 years in and around the area.

We have used Village People for several years now to help promote our business and it’s been very successful for us. The VP team is friendly and always goes above and beyond to help.

Philip Hodge has advertised in Village People for many years, and secured plenty of business from it.

The magazine’s team has been very helpful with the design of my advert and flexible when required.

It’s a great way of letting people in the area know about my services available on their doorstep, and a positive factor in spreading the word about both the furniture restoration service and the courses offered by Philip Hodge. I look forward to many more years of co-operation and mutual satisfaction.

As a national business that is proud of our Norfolk roots we’ve worked with Village People over a number of years to help us reach potential customers closer to home, using our print adverts to build both brand and product awareness.

The response has been hugely valuable and we can track orders directly back to the adverts we have placed in previous issues.

I recently set up my own independent Estate Agency, putting my 22 years of experience of the local property market into providing a more personal service; to help clients move home or achieve the sale they need, with friendly, caring, professional advice and first-class marketing at the heart of what I do.

It was an obvious choice to advertise in Village People to let homeowners in South Norfolk know that I am here to help with anything property-related. This has been very successful for us.

I’d like to say a massive thank you for putting my advert on one of the first pages in the magazine, it seems to have had a very positive impact on the calls coming in.

I’ve had 4 enquiries in the last two days alone! I really can’t thank you enough for that.

Advertising in Village People is a very good way for businesses to increase their impact, as people reading a magazine full of editorial would possibly be looking for likely trades people like me.

I work for other local tradesmen occasionally and recommended advertising in your magazine because I’ve had so much success with it. Village People is also why I don’t get enough time spare to work for them – they know how well my advert is working by the amount of my own work I’m doing!

Since starting our advertising with Village People some seven years ago, we have consistently seen our business grow.

We always know when the magazines have been delivered, as the calls for enquiries start rolling in and the conversion from quote to winning the job is very favourable. We know the magazine is being looked at by our target market, home owners who require external works done on their properties.

The staff at Village People magazine have always been very helpful in advising on the best regions to target and providing a free alteration service on our adverts as and when things have needed changing or updating.

We will continue to advertise with the Village People for the foreseeable future and thoroughly recommend it to other local businesses.

Village People magazine really works for my cleaning business. It’s easy to renew my advert as the ladies at VP are very helpful and accommodating. In fact I’ve run a permanent ongoing advert now for the last eight years.

I always know when the magazine delivery has started as my phone becomes busier with new business. I am very grateful for the way this magazine helps my business grow.

We have been advertising in every issue of Village People magazine for the last two years.

As a local family run business, we have found it important to promote our business in a publication that gets delivered directly into the hands of potential customers. We have had great feedback from our advert, which is fantastic given a lot of our business comes from word of mouth and recommendations.

Thank you to all at Village People for all the help so far and we look forward to working with you in the future.

We’ve been advertising with Village People from the start, and couldn’t be happier with what they do. They’ve always been great to deal with and will always help out where they canwith deadlines.

We’ve noticed the phone rings a lot more when the magazine comes out, so we know it works well for us.

As a self-storage business, it’s paramount that we target local people. We have found that advertising in Village People gives our business the exposure required within the local community and surrounding areas. The added benefit of the magazine being available online allows customers from afar, who are relocating to East Anglia, to learn about our storage facilities and reserve their self-storage container ready for their move.

I’m the owner of Fonemagic, a mobile phone and tablet repair company.

I’ve been advertising in Village People Magazine for a number of years now, and working with Emma. Why? Well, Village People is very easy to work with, and the magazine goes out to over 66,000 rural households, where many don’t have internet.

It’s invaluable to my business that my services can be seen alongside other local trades. A trusted magazine, in my opinion.

Helping people get back to full fitness, and to be able to live their lives to the full, often when they have nowhere else to turn, is very rewarding, but we need people to know who we are.

Village People allows us to let the people of Norwich know we are there for them and, as an added bonus, the magazine’s team are lovely to deal with!

We have been advertising in Village People for four years now and been very pleased with the response we have had from people looking to make their Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

We have tried some other forms of advertising, but nothing else has given us the results of Village People.

Advertising in Village People has been great for Enviroplanet. We began 15 months ago and found it a rewarding way of communicating with the readers. The team at Village People are friendly and professional, especially Emma, and we have no hesitation in recommending.

Thank you, Village People.

I have had the pleasure of advertising in Village People for five years. I chose my advert, its size and the amount of homes by area I wanted to be sent to; ideal for a sole trader such as myself, meaning I was in control throughout.

Even throughout the pandemic, Village People switched to a free online service directory to assist in locating local businesses online.

The team has always been friendly, professional and quick to respond in case I have a question, and I will continue to use them in the future. My advert consistently brings in new enquiries and customers for my business.

I’m a Norwich-based tour guide who offers history-themed walking tours in Cromer, Norwich and the Broads.

I have been advertising with Village People for the last two years and find them very friendly and efficient. The magazine is a great way to raise awareness of my tours with local residents, who are very important to my business.

Advertising in Village People has always been a necessity within our marketing plan.

As a local family business, customer service and integrity is always of vital importance to us and it’s clear from our strong partnership over the years that Village People also prioritise these core values.

Through their highly popular publication, Village People help us reach thousands of homes every month, including the rural homes we couldn’t reach on our own. The return on our investment has always been clear and we look forward to continuing this fruitful relationship for years to come.

We have gained many customers who have seen our regular advert in Village People. It’s a really informative magazine with interesting articles and a fantastic way to promote local businesses.

The Village People team is great, always helpful and quick to respond, so a big thank you to them for everything they have done for us and our family business.

We are the largest independent opticians and hearing care provider in the county, and we have advertised in Village People magazine for over four years now. It has vast distribution numbers across Norfolk and Suffolk and we find that delivered publications are much more effective for us.

This magazine is an ideal way to get Cecil Amey and our services and products in front of a wide audience. Lily, the editor, is always very helpful and supportive too, which is an added bonus.

Rachel Davis, Marketing Co-Ordinator


My business had been established for 10 years and ran exclusively on word-of-mouth recommendations, but when I slightly altered my offering to a design-only service I realised I needed to reach new people.

After having used Village People to source tradespeople and services, always with good results, it felt like the natural place to go and seemed to fit my target demographic.

Almost immediately I started to see a response to my advert. I recouped my investment within the first job, and also beat any previous record for numbers of enquiries and conversions several times over. The interest has remained steady and this new era of my business has been busy and profitable – for the first time ever this is thanks to advertising.

I look forward to each issue as I really enjoy reading all the great articles and features… and also for the phone to ring!

We started advertising in Village People in October 2021 and found instant success – our customers have increased by 150%! I would recommend the magazine to anyone, regardless of their industry… plus the staff are excellent.

As an independent estate agent, we rely heavily on local reputation and word of mouth. Our branches are based in the heart of the villages and towns the magazine covers, so it was an obvious choice to advertise in Village People due to the wide, but very relevant, distribution.

Whilst the last few years have seen a big shift towards digital advertising, there’s no denying that local publications like this remain an integral source of information for a large selection of the population.

Village People provides exposure for our business to a wider customer base and it’s great to know the readers are seeing the Hammond & Stratford name, so we are their local point of contact when looking to sell or buy a property.

We’ve used Village People Magazine for the last five years promoting our smaller edge of town shop and more recently our high street premises.

We’ve had great results from this, with many experiences of shoppers telling us they found us in the magazine.

Emma, our Village People rep, is fantastically organised and professional and we’re really happy with how Hilary & Alice is presented in the magazine.

We worked alongside our Village People rep, Emma, to launch our first advert in Village People in 2022.

Emma and the magazine’s expert team guided us through creating the best ad possible, promoting our on-site coffee shop using a cut-out voucher for any new customers to bring and receive a slice of cake free with any coffee.

This increased traffic to our coffee shop and we found the advert a great success. We look forward to advertising again this year.

It’s been a pleasure doing business with you over the last 14 years and I appreciate the input/advise and friendly service you have given me.

It always made me happy when we received leads from your magazine as they were generally very nice people and I genuinely wanted to support local businesses like yourselves. I hope your magazine continues to prosper.

I have advertised my services with many different sources over the past 20 years and some can be a waste of time.

Village People, however, really does reach the client base that lives in rural areas in East Anglia, and those seeking services for their home and garden. Of course it helps if you have a website that can be linked from this great little magazine.

It’s good reading too. This is what makes potential customers browse through, and even if they’re not looking for your services it gets their minds thinking.

The only reason I don’t advertise every month is that I get so much work from it and I don’t have the spare capacity.

Well done everyone at Village People.

After moving to the area, and therefore leaving all my existing customers behind, it soon became apparent that door to door leafleting wasn’t a viable option.

I am very pleased to say that from the moment my first advertisement appeared in the Village People, I received plenty of enquiries and my order book filled up within a matter of weeks.

Well worth the investment, plus the option of choosing the publication area works well for me, keeping my customers local, and travelling time to a minimum.

I have been in your book since 2010, when it was The Hare and Hen, which was pretty much when I had just set out on my own and it has always been good to me over the years but I now find myself in a position where I am constantly busy and, I find myself being too busy to help the people who get in touch via Village People.
A shame to stop something that works but that’s the position I now find myself in and if I ever feel I need to start advertising again you’ll be the first person I come back to.
Thank you for all your efforts over the years.

I always know when the latest Village People magazine has dropped through the letterboxes, our phone gets even busier!

When I ask customers where they’ve heard of us, 9 times out of 10 it is through our advert in Village People. It is always good to hear readers praise the magazine too, giving me reassurance that I chose the best publication to advertise in!

I would definitely recommend this magazine to any local business if you are looking to grow your business.

As a provider of care services to individuals in their own homes, many of whom are isolated and rural, it was vital that we found a source of communication that would reach these sectors in an eyecatching and interesting way.

We have worked with Village People since their launch 6 years ago and have been delighted with their flexible approach to our advertising needs, as well as their commitment to increasing their coverage in line with feedback from customers such as us.

The publication is professional and innovative and most importantly delivers the results we need at a price that is fair and competitive.

When asked to provide a reason for using the Village People Magazines as a method of advertising, my reasons are simple…

Not only are the publications well thought out, they provide the individual with a balanced read with both editorials, adverts and local information. These pocket sized magazines are beautifully presented and fit our target market perfectly.

Not only that, but Lily and her team are a pleasure to work with, and will go above and beyond to make any advert stand out in the crowd.

Thoroughly Recommended!

Village People Magazine is an excellent opportunity to advertise direct to those people who live in smaller villages throughout the region, even those in very rural locations.

The magazine is posted directly through the door ensuring our advertising reaches the widest possible audience.

Steeles Law has been advertising in Village People for two years now. We use our regular advertorial feature to highlight the different legal services we are able to offer, as well as informing readers on changes in the law and discussion on topics which affect us all.

The Steeles Law brand has its roots in the Diss area and we relish the opportunity to connect with members of our local community old and new through a high quality, targeted magazine like Village People.

Steeles Law


Village People is a high quality publication, and helps us connect with a strong market for us.

Going directly into homes, and with a long shelf-life, it’s ideal for building awareness of our programme and helping us sell more tickets. It’s now an essential part of our marketing mix.

The fact that Lily and her team are friendly and well-organised is a bonus!

Not one who would normally put pen to paper but I am so pleased with the results since placing an advert into Village People that I am inspired to do just that.

From the very first day your magazine dropped through the letterboxes my phone has been ringing with enquiries and I am now booked up for several weeks in advance.

Being new to advertising, I found both Lily and Sylvia very friendly, helpful and informative, it appeared no trouble for you to turn my rough notes and contact details into an impressive and professional looking advert.

To anyone who is thinking of advertising I thoroughly recommend using Village People. Thank you and keep it going!

I have always been a newspaper advertiser with the occasional magazine, but always feel disappointed when people say they haven’t received a free copy through their door. So I was naturally apprehensive about trying Village People, but with Sylvia and Lily’s gentle persuasion and guarantee that I will see results, I gave it a try.

What really makes you happy as an advertiser is on the day the magazines hit the doorsteps, a customer that had never heard of us, came over to our showroom and after a couple of hours had picked a new bed, headboard and bedding.

A sale that without the Village People magazine would have no doubt gone to one of my competitors in Norwich.

Being new to advertising, copy deadlines, proofs etc. I was worried about where to start when I decided to place an ad in Village People magazines.

I was able to speak with the editor Lily directly and she quickly allayed my fears and I was able to let her get on with it. Emails were always responded to quickly and professionally.

Having advertised in many local and nationwide magazines to launch my new business I monitored carefully the response and am pleased to report many people mentioning Village People magazine.

Having tried different methods of advertising my business, I now don’t bother with anything else other than my village parish magazine and Village People.

This magazine generates more new business for me than any other advertising has, and I highly recommend it to others in business.

I am now getting repeat business, plus recommendations from clients who originally saw my advert in your magazine.

Village People is an extremely well thought out magazine, and I feel that my advert has been carefully considered and positioned, and not just ‘plonked’ in anywhere as has happened in other publications.

Many thanks for your support Lily, and I wish you continued success.

I have been advertising regularly in Village People, more or less since they first started, and can honestly say that the resulting costs have been very handsomely covered during that time.

Not everyone immediately goes ‘on line’ to find a solution to a problem, and I have found that this little book has consistently delivered and brought in the business – especially in the wasp season.

We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the response we have had from our advertising in Village People.

We have been delighted with not only the volume of enquires but also the quality of the business generated. As a result of our initial experience we have been more than happy to increase our advert to a half page colour insertion. We feel that you offer value for money in terms of a quality magazine and a large distribution area.

Can’t wait for Village People to expand their coverage area!

We have been very pleasantly surprised by the response our adverts have had in the Village People magazine.

We have had some good sales from readers of the book and generally the impression I get from these customers is that they use the magazine a great deal. They get very little else like this through their doors, so they are very grateful to receive and use the publication.

We will certainly be continuing to advertise in the Village People.

I really like this magazine which has brought me in a lot of business. Because it has lots of articles and other things of interest, it is a useful addition to the household.

It also looks really good: it’s colourful; well laid out with lots of useful local business and services contacts.

Being delivered to 14,000 homes in 70 villages in South Norfolk, I feel my message really gets across.

Since we have started using Village People for our advertising, we have noticed a big increase in enquiries, many of which have led to sales and also very pleasing is the fact that a large proportion of these have been local customers.

I just wanted to write and say thank you for a fantastic publication.

This is a real life line for readers and rural businesses alike. Having lived in Norwich all my life, with almost every service and amenity within easy reach, I felt totally cut off from everything when I moved to the country. Village People helps bridge that gap, pointing needy readers to vital services right on their doorstep.

When my wife started up her small massage business recently, we looked at various advertising avenues. With local free weekly newspapers in sharp decline and the main regional daily costing an absolute fortune to place a small ad in, we looked at advertising in a few local village mags. But these are usually amateurish ‘photocopied style’ publications which are badly laid out.

When we came across your magazine around a friend’s house, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. Frankly, it’s a breath of fresh air, targeting thousands of rural households close to our area and at affordable rates. It’s a well compiled and professional looking ‘directory’ full of local services with interesting articles, one that I would like to keep instead of just binning after a brief read. It has played a big part in helping my wife’s business get off the ground and continues to establish her business in the community, in turn pointing customers to our website. We have been delighted with the response.

We think Village People is a real must for any business wanting to reach the ‘cut off’ village communities.

What a great idea the Village People magazine is and by offering cost effective advertising I’d highly recommend it to any small business wanting to promote themselves.

From just my first advert the response I’ve had has been tremendous and very exciting and not only is my business doing well from advertising in Village People but I’ve also heard about several other businesses which I’m now a regular customer of, so great for them too.

I also think that Village People is successful as the editor, Lily, is hands on, approachable, helpful and very good at creating eye catching adverts. Thank you Lily for having such a great idea and for bringing the Village People magazine to us.

I am not experienced when it comes to computers and advertising so it was wonderful to have the guidance and expert help from Village People.

Standards of work were extremely high and I found them very friendly to work with. I highly recommend this magazine.

As a brand new business, the thought of creating an eye catching advert was a little daunting. However, the process for advertising with Village People magazine could not have been simpler.

Lily was extremely positive, enthusiastic and professional and I was absolutely thrilled with the advert that she produced for me alongside a great Editorial.

She continues to be an ongoing source of support, advice and contacts! Many thanks for everything.

I first found your magazine in a digger returned from hire in New Buckenham; what an excellent publication. After reading it we placed an advert; easy, efficient and a good response.

Thanks to all at Village People.
