A big thank you to Vivi and Village Connect. I have been advertising with this publication for nearly three years since starting my own plumbing and bathroom business.  I have had great success attracting new customers and continue to gain a good customer base.  Vivi is very professional and has great customer service skills, which has more than attributed to the success of the publication.

I have been in business for eight years now, and over that time you get regular clients that come back to you time and time again, and the really good thing about Village Connect is that it brings in new customers that keep you topped up alongside your regular clients!

Hi Vivi, I am a member of Green Horizons, based in Cottingham. You very kindly printed a beautiful article in Village connect, about our Apple day event which took place on Sunday. I just wanted to say thank you so much for including us in the last edition and to let you know that a number of visitors mentioned that they had found out about the event through your magazine. We were delighted by how many visitors we had - it helped to create a wonderful, happy atmosphere and raised over £2000 which will be used to develop the project field and also provide social activities for the children to develop their skills. We know that your article helped to bring visitors to our event and are really grateful to you for helping us to have a successful day. Thank you again,

Thank you so much for helping us advertise our Garage Sale. We were flooded with buyers, despire the wet weather! Many had seen the advert you had put in Village Connect. We raised £408 for the Jubilee Fund, which was far more than I imagined even on a fine day!

Jollys has been advertising with Village Connect since we opened in 2013. It is such a well-run magazine and it is always a delight to deal with Vivi, who has supported us in many ways over the years. I like that the magazine is filled with articles and local event listings which keeps Village Connect on the coffee table longer than many other local magazines. It has resulted in us winning many new customers, and it is one of our favourite publications to spend money advertising in. Highly recommended!

We have been advertising with Village Connect for some time now and find the service we receive to be extremely professional and quick. The advert continues to bring new business to us on a regular basis. We feel that advertising locally helps to promote our business name and reputation. We are often told that customers get our details from the magazine but that someone they know has also recommended us after contracting our services from the advert.
