We had a committee meeting last night and the Membership Secretary told me we are still getting half a dozen or so new members each month through your magazine, so these little pieces really do work.

You're one of our major supports and I've been surprised how many people have said to me that they've read my bits in Retford Life.  It certainly brings in members and that's very much appreciated.

Physio Pilates Retford

I started advertising with Retford Life around 7 years ago, and the number of enquiries and bookings I received in the following weeks was amazing. I have continued regularly advertising with them since, and it is still via Retford Life that several new clients first hear about my Physiotherapy & Pilates practice.
