Maidstone Village Magazine is independently owned and published by a Helena, a local resident and businesswoman.
"Supporting our business community and buying local is important to many people, especially in these difficult financial times. But it's often a challenge to find truly local firms as they can be overshadowed by the national chains and franchises who are able to spend so much more on advertising.
Maidstone Village Magazine provides a platform for local firms who operate in and around Maidstone to be discovered. Local people are often surprised by the exceptional quality of companies right on our doorstep, and also the extensive range of services available. Advertising in the magazine is really affordable, which opens it up to many businesses, with a business card size full colour advertisement costing just £25 per month."
As well as the directory of local businesses and service providers, the magazines also feature editorial articles getting under the skin of selected local businesses, local events, a what's on page, community information, motoring reviews, book reviews, recipes, puzzles, competitions, horoscopes, gardening tips and much more.
Local charities and organisations are also given the opportunity to get their message across to readers, providing fantastic, free of charge exposure, to help them raise much-needed funds.
"It is all truly local and the magazines are completely free. I am very passionate about buying local and I am really excited to bring these magazines to the people of Maidstone and help them to go local too."
