These are truly local magazines, dedicated to the residents of Lower Sunbury, Shepperton and Laleham and Molesey, giving local trades the opportunity to advertise to local people. There is strong evidence that the majority of the UK population will choose a local company over one in another area.

It works. Experience shows that this type of community magazine is widely read and used by the residents of the village. Most advertisers choose to appear month after month – because it works and generates business for them.

Ratecard

The Matters magazines represent incredible value for money. We maintain our rates at an affordable level so that advertising is affordable by even the smallest company.

Longevity – They are not thrown away each week like a local newspaper. People keep the magazines as a reference for the whole month, often longer. Many people say they have the full set since the very beginning!
