The Family Grapevine is a free magazine packed with local information. Aimed at parents, grandparents and carers, it provides details of events, activities and services relevant to families with children from pregnancy and beyond.  The Family Grapevine retains a strong identity and a very loyal readership and advertiser base.

Many of our readers lead such busy lives they prefer easy to find information, helpful ideas and essential facts.  The Family Grapevine offers concise, accurate information, also suggesting fun things to do for every budget.  When planning time with their children, parents can turn time and again to the Family Grapevine to find information for all ages.

Extensive circulation and reliable distribution

Copies of the magazine are distributed across the West Surrey area including Guildford, Woking, Staines, Shepperton, Ashford, Chertsey, Addlestone, Lightwater and the surrounding areas. Our distribution points are constantly reviewed to guarantee their relevance.  We place copies in all of the local libraries as well as a number of local primary schools and nurseries, encouraging parents to read it just as they would an official school letter.

Further copies are available at many places the general public visit e.g. supermarkets, leisure centres, family attractions including soft play centres, children’s retail outlets, sports and dance clubs. New parents are given the magazines at health checks, toddler groups, pre-schools, children’s centres and day nurseries as well as receiving a copy in the birth packs given to new parents by the Surrey Health Visitors.

All copies are distributed by a member of the group.  We do not employ third parties so there is no risk of dumping.
