What our advertisers say

“The Now magazines has provided an ideal platform for advertising my small curtain making business over a number of years. Its geographical coverage has been perfect for my needs and I’ve received much business as a result. Wendy and Jane have been always helpful and efficient to work with, helping me sort out my ad in the early days, and offering flexible advertising. I use the magazine to find local tradesmen and women as I know that they will usually be the ones to offer a more personal and reliable service. Thank you, Jane and Wendy!” 

Sue Smyth Soft Furnishings

What our readers say
