Well Kerri is at it again - I just received a call offfering a quarter page feature for two weeks, plus 12 months on their website for an enticing 130 (instead of the usual 595)! Not enticing enough - at least if I set fire to my money it would briefly give me warmth and light - not sure handing money to the Bucks Berks and Oxon Guardian would bring me anything so good Wink

Thank you to Paolo for providing this wonderful LMH website and all the contributors who've helped me make better decisions over the years.

I have just returned from 6 days away and had a message from Kerry to call her back which I certainly won't do after my experience above - unbelievable!

If she calls again she can answer why I wasn't given what I was promised last time around, why they stopped replying to my e-mails and why I didn't get a single enquiry from their stupid publication which I am convinced doesn't even go out.

No doubt she will just put down the phone.

As I live in Bucks I just googled them - and hey presto!
http://www.bucksberksoxon.co.uk/
So they do exist in some form, although I've never seen an actual newspaper anywhere! However, they do say they "aim their publication at higher income earners who have a disposable income" so maybe I'm just not their target market! Even so, as they say the paper "is distributed to places like coffee shops, garages, supermarkets, hairdressers, barbers, cafes, libaries (sic), garages, hotels and much more etc." I can't believe I wouldn't have seen it somewhere!
Looking at their website, I've no idea what 'Kerry' thinks people here would be paying for as it seems they simply provide links to other sites specialising in advertising holiday lets - like HA, HL and a few I've never heard of.
Oh, and they only have a print run of 5000 ... if it exists!
