  • "Most of my customers are now coming via The Hanover Directory. Their orders are among the most creative, and I really appreciate reading the Directory to get a clearer sense of their values and preferences."

  • "I have been advertising my business, Musical Bumps, in the Hanover Directory for some time now and can definitely say that it has played a big part in helping to build up my classes. I always ask new parents where they have heard about Musical Bumps and invariably the reply is the 'Hanover Directory'. I would recommend advertising with Sussex Magazines, I've received  help and support from Tim Clark and the service they provide is very helpful. "

Please can you send me another copy. I keep them all as I have recently moved into the area and it's a great reference for me. I have used companies/services that are advertised as I had no other reference point so to me it was very useful."

I have been advertising continually now for two years which helps to maintain consistency as a local business. I have maintained a good business relationship with the editor Tim, ever since, who has always provided me with excellent service, has always helped me to support the local community by promoting charitable events with community interests at heart and thus provides an excellent community resource for the local residents and businesses alike."
