First launched in Bookham in December 2005 by Rosalind Thomas. We
have grown from humble beginnings into four substantial publications,
with a joint circulation of 28,000 and magazines going out ten times a
The first ever issue in Bookham filled a mere 28 pages, but over the next twelve months, the size doubled as word spread and a loyal following grew. Today, Look Local Magazine in Bookham regularly fills 80 pages or more. Look Local Magazine Cobham joined the ranks in December 2006, followed by magazines covering Esher and Weybridge .
"We pride ourselves on the quality of our product", says Ros."We use some of the industry's leading software and state-of-the-art production techniques, coupled with some imaginative design work. The end result gives high resolution copy on good quality paper, producing, what we regard as some of the most attractive and eye catching little magazines around."
We aim to bring you an ever growing monthly selection of local businesses, as well as some interesting local articles and features. Regularly featured are puzzles, recipes, reviews and coverage of local events; in fact, as much local information as we can cram into our little pages each month.
Our approach has twice landed us national awards: as Best Local Community Magazine; once in October 2006 and again in July 2009. It is fantastic to be rated as one of the top local community magazines in the country. Readers and advertisers alike truly seem to love our winning combination. Many advertisers have actually been with us since the early days, and whether they are local shops or national chains, they come back time and time again because:
"Look Local magazines offers an affordable and effective way to reach the people of Bookham, Cobham, Weybridge and Esher, and it really works!"
So whether you are looking to advertise your business or simply enjoy a good read, we are delighted to welcome you to Look Local Magazine.
