“Just a big thank you for the good advert you placed for the blood session. It was very successful and we will be repeating it in December.
It is because of people like yourselves that the session was more widely recognised.
Thanks!!

Glenda, National Blood Service

“Due to the unique circulation area of Ouse Valley Living (which is ever expanding), we are able to target the areas which suit the requirements of our business. Also due to the content, format and articles featured within OVL, we feel that it holds interest and as such the magazine is kept as a reference tool by individuals whereas newspaper/flyers and such are not. This means that advertising in OVL provides a true 365 days a year advert in the homes of our target market.
LWS has received from OVL on average (over a 52 week year), since the start of advertising, 6 calls a week and from these 62.7% of them have been turned into orders. Beds Party Tents has received 5 calls per week and from these 82.6% of them have been turned into orders. These figures are impressive as any marketing analyst will advise, and far exceeds all other advertising that we participate in.”

Daniel Lewis, Beds Party Tents

“A year ago, we decided to expand our local promotional programme to include Ouse Valley Living. Just as build quality and value for money are essential features of the range of mowers and garden machines we supply, the quality and content of the OVL magazine and its local market coverage were important considerations for us in this decision. Throughout the year, we have found the service provided by Michele and Jacqui at OVL to be consistent with the high standards of after sales service we set in our own business. All in all we have enjoyed a very positive and productive relationship with OVL.”
Gary Bass, Groundcare Machinery Services Ltd

“www.buy-local.net is an award-winning online farmers market that delivers a whole basket of quality local produce to customers in Bedfordshire. We are a startup business and the support we have been given by the OVL team cannot be understated. We write a regular topical column for Michele and Jacqui, along with a regular advertising feature and sponsoring the ‘Where on Earth’ competition. The exposure this has given us, on a tight budget, has allowed us to build our brand and customer base, and get our message over to local people. We are involved in many shows across the summer months and OVL never fails to get a mention for people who visit our stand! We are proud to feature in the improved glossy magazine, and we feel this is a Community Magazine with real value and no equal in our area.”
Rick & Lisa Sanderson, Buy-Local.net Ltd

“We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during our first year of trading.  Your magazine has doubtless played a huge part in our initial success, and although the majority of Martyn's work now comes from referrals the Ouse Valley Advert is always commented upon.  The magazine is so tastefully compiled it doesn't deserve to be anything other than the great success it is!  Martyn & I would like to wish you continued success, and we are sure that the magazine will grow from strength to strength - keep up the good work!”
Jane & Martyn Petters, Oakley Upholstery & Interiors

“I met you at the broom cupboard and advertised The Linnetts, apartments for over 55s in Rushden, probably last year. Just thought I would offer my congratulations to you both on the success of your magazine. Well done. Successful and beautiful - a great combination!! Good luck for the future".
Richard Houghton, Plough Developments

“Both myself and my clients have been thoroughly impressed with the continued growth and success of Ouse Valley Living. It gives us exactly what we need for the catchment area, both for advertisers and with editorial. On top of that the production team is thoroughly professional and pro-active in their help and support”
Ian Rowe, PR Matters

“Jacqui and Michele contacted me when they were launching Ouse Valley Living and I gave them my commitment as an advertiser. The magazine was unique in the area and I was happy to support a local venture. OVL has continued to be reliably distributed and of superior quality. Over the years, Jacqui and Michele’s dedication and talents have enabled the magazine’s distribution to expand ‘up and downstream’ – it has become a household name!”
Claire Rachel Jones, The Green Room

“Just had to write to you both, to express how pleased I have been since advertising in your magazine! I have just placed an advert in the Ouse Valley Living, and have received 4 new clients within one week! That’s what I call great business!”
