It is a legal requirement to provide the address of our magazine publishing house which we have always done so since 2009
We have always used the same distribution organization Dor-2–Dor, based in Radlett. They have always given us 100% satisfaction, as they are very reliable using only people they can trust to carry out the job to the best of their ability. They are also used by government organizations. We make physical checks that our magazine has been delivered.
Any business that wants to advertise in our magazine must obtain a reference from an existing business in our magazine, or from at least two satisfied customers.
We are the only local publication that donates all its profit to local charities and we list those that have benefited.
