I have been dealing with Focus for 5 years now for both advertising and printing, and have found that more and more people are using the magazine when looking for work to be done.

The Focus magazines adverts have really worked for us, on top of that I have been impressed with the high level of service I receive from Karen.

Once again, your promoting our Stamp Fair and indeed Stamp Club membership has resulted in many phone call enquiries, far in excess of any other local advertising.

Thank you so much

After running several adverts in the Focus Brackley Magazine with you I have received an order from a Brackley based customer from the displayed quarter page advert. After the initial order, I was asked to quote for further furnishings to two further rooms!

I have been extremely happy with the level of response from adverts I have placed in Focus Towcester and I think it is unique to the area in being a magazine which people actually read and I get many enquiries from it.  It's also the the first place I look if I need something locally!

I just wanted to say that we have been very pleased with the results of our adverts with you. We have picked up three clients so far and have just had another enquiry. Definitely the best response to advertising we have ever had.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the editorial with my advert.  I had a large group of new customers who came in today totally because of the advert!!

Great stuff!

Dragon Boat Festival

Sunday 14th July 2019

Midsummer Meadow, Northampton

To coincide with the Chinese New Year the Rotary Clubs of Northampton are unveiling this year’s Dragon Boat Festival.  The Rotary Dragon Boat Festival is returning to Northampton’s Midsummer Meadow after four years at Billing Aquadrome.  This will be the sixteenth annual dragon boat race in the Northampton area, organised and run by the four Northampton Rotary Clubs.  The event is scheduled to take place on  with up to 39 crews racing on the adjacent River Nene.  

This is possibly the foremost fund raising event in the Northampton community calendar. Over the years it has raised many thousands of pounds for local charities.

This year a number of changes have been introduced:

All paying teams entering the event will be able to nominate a local charity of their choice to receive a £200 donation from the four Rotary Clubs of Northampton.
The teams will also be able to use the event to publicise their chosen charities and to raise additional funds.
The event is open to all comers including local businesses, sports clubs, schools, colleges, universities and privately entered teams.

The festival will include entertainment for all the family such as rides, stalls, food and drink. Entry to the festival is free of charge. Car parking will be available at a nominal fee.

All the profit from this event will go to Rotary supported projects locally, nationally and internationally.

Event Chairman, Paul Simpson stated “We are delighted to bring the event back into the town. The event has retained its popularity with the competing teams and is a great fun day out for all the family. In the past it has attracted over 2000 visitors.
