Eli Beckett, Oakleaf
I just wanted to thank you all for the double page spread in this month’s VantagePoint magazine. Over the weekend I have had a number of emails from local individuals asking for help for either themselves or family members who are struggling with their mental health – to know that the article is giving people a reason to reach out for support is more than we could have hoped for, so thank you for giving us this opportunity.
Julie, Pats’ Cats Summer Fair
Just a quick message to thank you very much for the mention you gave to our Pat’s Cats Summer Fair in the July issue of VantagePoint. We had a very successful event on Saturday and I know from chatting to our visitors that many of them saw the event in the Jottings section of the magazine, so thank you once again.
Kevin Griffin, Guttersnipe
I’ve advertised in many magazines over the years but I never have had such a speedy take up when first advertising in a magazine as I have from advertising with VantagePoint. The results have been excellent.
Anna Reid, Fundraiser, Cherry Trees
VantagePoint, the hub of community events, companies and information decision to adapt to a weekly online version during the peak of the initial COVID-19 pandemic was such a good idea. Every week you could find out about services, assistance and even virtual events to join in with that all felt really timely, local and useful, especially at that time. We thought it was brilliant because it gave us another place to tell our community about one of our virtual fundraising events, to host a cream tea party. We were able to send over our colourful event jpeg for inclusion which helped reach more people in this brilliant weekly online service.
The Countess of Onslow, Clandon Park
Your magazine carried a lovely article about Clandon Park and it seems to have reached so many people in the local community that were totally unaware of what we do, and for that we are very grateful. The article created quite a stir it seems, and we have since been inundated with letters from well wishers and telephone calls with the most wonderful feedback from the local community. It is extraordinary that members of our local community really responded so enthusiastically to our projects to the extent that they have been moved to contact us and even to offer their time as Clandon Park Volunteer Rangers! Please pass on our sincere thanks to all concerned for such a lovely article which totally captured the spirit of these important Clandon Park projects.
Beccy Gunn, The White Horse, Dorking
We have been advertising with VantagePoint for 9 months and have renewed for 2020. The magazine has proved to help us reach a wider local audience and we have seen as a result of the offers and adverts more guests using the hotel, restaurant and bar.. The team at VantagePoint continually support all our events and I would highly recommend them to other local advertisers.
Jen Clay, Oakleaf Mental Health Charity
Sarah and Vantage Point have been wonderful supporters of Oakleaf, particularly during Covid-19 lockdown. Between giving free space for advertising in their e-newsletters to participating in our virtual quiz nights, we are so grateful to have their support during such a difficult time for the charity!
Paul Cabourne, Guildford
We recently moved into the area and it was good to receive a copy of Vantagepoint
This was so useful as it provides us with some very useful information about the area and provides us with some useful local news and information.
In addition there are some great competitions to enter and I did just that and just before Christmas I received an email to advise me I had won a lovely Cheese Hamper from the The High Wield Dairy. What a lovely surprise and thank you.
Ian Cox, Liphook Eyecare
We have seen quite a few people walking into the store and lots of new patients joining us.

Wendy Varcoe, Surrey Hills Enterprises
Congratulations also to Stefan who produced some great on-line VantagePoint editions during the lock-down!
Des O’Byrne, Grayshott Folk Club
I wish you and Stefan and the rest of the crew every success with VantagePoint. I am, as ever, grateful that you carry my stuff and help to get the word out there via your “Jottings” and hope that as readers read more closely what is actually written, so they will detect a more insightful and more accurate turn of phrase when it comes to local events in “VantagePoint”. There is nothing like being a part of a community, in order to get a better feel on the ground for what really makes people tick. An outside observer just doesn’t seem to achieve the same authenticity or authority, in my humble opinion.
Alan Chilvers, Orlando Jewellers
Claire, l would just like to say a big thank you for your visit to Orlando last year . You have been very helpful ensuring that our advert has been kept up to date .The results have been very positive and good value in my opinion. The comprehensive distribution around the Guildford area has really been very useful for our advertising campaign and probably one of the best we have run. Thank you VantagePoint!
Tricia Knight, Farnham & District Museum Society
I’ve really noticed a difference in the numbers attending our talks so you are obviously reaching the parts other don’t reach!
Matt Harle, MH Electrical
I have been advertising in VantagePoint for a few months now and I have seen great results. The team are always really friendly. Highly recommend.
I am impressed by the range and number of local articles you include in VantagePoint. That aspect of the magazine appears to be growing, which is good. Makes it all the more worthwhile to receive … and read.
Sam Segar, Sam Segar Reflexology
I have been advertising with VantagePoint for many years and always find the staff very friendly and helpful. They will tweek my artwork for free as many times as I need until I’m happy with the result. I have gained many clients through this advertising platform and even more enquiries. The staff are always approachable and I get replies to my queries and emails almost immediately. If you’re thinking of advertising with VantagePoint – you can’t go far wrong with Marcus and Stefan.
Jane Hodgson, Fernhurst Films
A belated but nonetheless sincere thank you for advertising ‘Juliet, Naked’ for us for last Saturday. Your introduction piece made all the difference – we had a great night and everyone went out very happy. Nice way to finish up a successful season and we are extremely grateful for your support and encouragement throughout, you’ve helped us a lot.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the article in your exciting magazine!! It’s gone down a treat and we had people coming to our business incubator session today because of it. We are really chuffed with how it turned out and hopefully lots of people can benefit from it.
Andy Jones, A2B Pest Control
I have been advertising with VantagePoint for nearly 9 months and have found it really works. I have started to get calls about new jobs and work and often get referrals from these. I would highly recommend this publication to small businesses wishing to get their name out there and raise their visibility locally
Caroline Forcer, SeeAbility
We’ve had fantastic feedback on our recent blog in VantagePoint Magazine about our open day in Leatherhead. I just wanted to thank you!
Brian Hawtin, Arts Society Wey Valley
Many thanks to you and the team for the excellent profile slot of our Society in the March Edition of VantagePoint. We are very grateful for the regular publicity for our monthly lectures which always results in a number of visitors. We are very hopeful that the in depth coverage of what our Society does and what we have to offer will result in a further surge of interest. We much appreciate the opportunity that you have given us. Thank you again and congratulations on the production of VantagePoint which seem s to be going from strength to strength. I find it an invaluable source of information on what is going on in the community.
Claudia Cartwright, Arts Officer, Mole Valley District Council
Thank you so much for the fabulous Arts Alive 2019 programme!!!!
I have only been advertising in VantagePoint for a few months and have really noticed the difference in the number of enquiries I have been receiving. Several clients have started attending my classes as a result of featuring in the magazine.
Moira Martin, Kelly’s Storage Charity Events
Whilst Kelly’s have had to cancel many of their local charity events due to Covid19 lockdown, they have continued to keep people motivated by offering a number of virtual events. Run the Races, Walk the Ways and High Flier Cycle challenges in June, have encouraged many people to set themselves a target, keep fit and raise money for local charities, as they struggle in these challenging times. We cannot thank the team at VantagePoint magazine enough , they have not only got on board and supported the events, (raising over £1,500 for local causes) but have raised visibility and awareness through their social media activities, their weekly e-newsletter and the online version of their magazine. Thank you for all your help to get these events noticed in the local community and beyond…
Dan Webber, Chimney Fire Coffee
We’re extremely grateful for the support that VantagePoint has given us, both in terms of connecting us to other businesses and including us in their editorials. They do a lot of work in the local community and help spread the word about other Surrey Hills Enterprise members. Thanks for your support!
Annabel, Keep Farnham
I’ve been meaning to message for ages! We’ve had the most amazing response thanks to your articles about us in Vantage Point. Lots and lots of new customers. Thank you so much for helping us spread the word in such a wonderfully put publication.

Sally and John Platt
My husband and I would like to say how much we enjoy the walks that you publish and do at least two a month. Yesterday we did the Crondall 5 miler, finishing off at the Plume of Feathers for lunch. A great walk and very easy to follow instructions. Thank you!
