  • “I will be retiring on the 31st July this year and so will need to cancel my advert at the end of May.
    Thank you for all the great service I have had from Jam Publications over all the years.
    I started advertising when the publication started too many years ago to remember and have received a huge number of jobs through it. The average customer likes ‘local’, it makes them feel more comfortable when requesting a service.

    In a way its a little sad to be parting company but I am looking forward to my retirement.”

    We wish Stuart all the very best for a long & happy retirement!

  • The Guide is still the most reliable free monthly magazine, as we get it every month without fail whereas other free mags arrive some months and not others! Keep up the good work and best wishes. Kind Regards John”

  • Hello

    Just to say thank you so much for advertising the Skylarks Summer Concert in the May and June editions of the Handbook covering the Preston/Walton le Dale area and the Longridge/Grimsargh area. The concert was held last Friday evening, July 1st and raised the grand total of £3,000 and eighty eight pence!. The Skylarks were exceptionally good and the three charities went away with £1,000 each for their funds.

    Thank you again for the free publicity for our event.

  • Go Cruise and the Lancashire Cruise club have advertised in Maria and John’s Local Guides for many years now and we have been delighted by the response that we have had. The publications provide us with a low cost way to advertise our business and enable us to refresh our image each month. We like to take advantage of this way to promote the Lancashire Cruise Club as we can get straight to the heart of the local community which is our target market and our information stays available for the entire month. The publications are of a high quality and the service provided by Maria is always very professional.

  • Hob Nob Oven Cleaning has been advertising with Jam Publications for at least 4 years. The response from the adverts is excellent.
    And the help we get from Maria, John and their staff is second to none.
    It is a great way to get your business across to the community, at a very reasonable price.


    Kind regards

    Susan and Nick.

  • Without fail, every time we place an advert for a University of Central Lancashire event in the Community Directory we get a noticeable increase in phone calls from people wanting to book tickets. Engaging with the local community is important to the University and we find Jam Publications to be a useful tool for helping us achieve this. Tania Callagher, University of Central Lancashire


  • I have advertised in the Guides since they started. I rate the guides highly, as they provide a very useful service to me in reaching out to a lot of potential customers, many of whom I know use the guide as the main source for the services they require. I get a good response from my adverts in the Guides and am very happy to recommend the Guides to other potential advertisers.
