What our advertisers say about us


‘We’ve added up the vouchers brought in by customers and the GOLD AWARD goes to…the Family Grapevine…by a mile!  Anthony, White Post Farm


I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I’ve been running my musical theatre classes for a year now and you are by far the best form of advertising I’ve used. The magazine gets everywhere! I also work in a primary school as well as running Train Withe Us and these were handed out to the children in the primary school which is far more convenient than me having flyers printed and contacting schools to ask them to hand my flyers out. I’ve been contacted about my classes more than ever before since having an advert put in your magazine so I’m excited to work with you again advertising my brand new dance classes as well as my musical theatre classes.

Not only has your magazine given me a great platform to spread the word about my classes but working with you and corresponding with you has been a very enjoyable experience.

You’re efficient and friendly and the whole process has been easy and stress free. Thank you for such wonderful service and for being a huge part of building my company.  Catherine Withe, Train Withe Us


We have been inundated with lots of new referrals, so the marketing did the trick!  Louise, Speech Therapy Specialists

‘Everyone I asked who had called from Nottinghamshire came through The Family Grapevine.’  Clair, Children’s Party Hire


‘We have long been fans of your publication at kimberley Leisure Centre due to the quality of not just the magazine itself but also the quality of service provided by yourself. Your personality fits very well with what you are trying to do in terms of putting out a quality publication that connects relevant services with families in the Nottinghamshire area. I myself having dealt with you for years recognise the benefits of having the Grapevine as a targeted marketing tool for our children’s and family focussed activities. As an outlet for your magazine we also see at first hand the value that parents place on your publication as when holidays are approaching they fly out like mad! The magazine is a credit to you and has become something you should be proud of as there are very few locally based companies that offer the quality that you have achieved. Thank you for everything in the past year and look forward to a positive and forward thinking New Year.’ Shaun Simmons, Kimberley Leisure Centre


‘Our advert has done really well for us! We’ve had lots of bookings…it’s doing the job we wanted it to!’  Sue, Nuthall Parish Council

‘Thanks for all your help and I think your magazine is fantastic, I received many customers through advertising with you and would recommend it to anyone!!’  Angela, Baby Ballet

Just some of what our readers say about the Family Grapevine!


Hello, my name is Helen and I just wanted to say thank you so much for The Family Grapevine for East and South Notts.


I just picked up a copy last week from Carlton Hill Library and was thrilled with it.


I found it so full of useful information for the local area and really loved the calender of events for the next few months.


As relative newcomers to Nottinghamshire, we are really enjoying discovering what the area boasts for families and have really fallen in love with the county and all that’s on offer.


Having a publication like Family Grapevine certainly helps to fill up the diary in advance so thank you very much for that.


We wish you every success and look forward to the next issue. Best wishes,   Helen Marsden


Can I please just say how great I think Family Grapevine magazine is, informative, interesting, different ………….. I live in West Bridgford with my 5 children aged 14 years down to 5 years, (2 daughters & 3 sons, one of whom is Autistic & another having a mild physical disability) & I found something age appropriate & of relevance to each child’s interest & ability in the publication. As a result of the advertisments we are going to the ‘Free Funfair’ for children with additional needs, & have made contacts with other groups / activities & have subsequently passed the information onto friends who did not get the magazine as I did. If you are in need of anyone to ‘review’ or ‘report’ on an activity or event please do consider myself & my lovely family, we would be very willing & happy to be of service!   Kind Regards,   Sonja Harris-Burton.

‘Its fantastic! It’s the best thing I’ve picked up! We’ve been to activities and play centres, my little boy goes to football and tae kwon do classes and we’ve got lots more ideas. We found them all in The Family Grapevine…its brilliant!’ Mrs Payton, Mansfield
