Resident’s Feedback

We wanted to share with you some of the great feedback that was emailed to us within a few days of the first edition going out…

I have read the new Brightonian, I used to get the Queens Park Living, which I enjoyed, but this magazine has definitely got more depth.

I’ve just received the new The Brightonian through the door and it looks great.

We have just received and read the ‘new look’ Hovarian  magazine.  We enjoyed the new format with its interesting and additional material.
Keep up the good work!

I love the new look local maglet, thank you for continuing to produce something so informative, well put together every month.
I always thought it would be a good idea to amalgamate the areas of Hove, as I certainly have an interest in the city as a whole and like to know what is going on across it.
My favourite pages are the biogs of local movers and shakers and articles on local history- Rachel Bridgeman’s contributions and the reproduced photos from the James Gray collection are what I particularly look forward to.
Notices from local councillors make them more accessible and Nathalie’s Health tips very helpful.
I was especially struck this month by the history of the seafront beacon – the fact that we maintain remnants of our past so brilliantly makes me incredibly proud to be a Hovarian.
Even the adverts are presented in such a way that they catch the eye, but don’t detract from the substance of the mag. Can I ask if you intend resuming your page detailing classes, events, group meetings etc when the ‘new normal’ is in full swing?
Keep up the great work.

The Hovarian came through the other day and I read through it this morning. It’s great to see what’s going on and finding out more about the residents in Hove, and the diversity of stories is great.

The front page of the inaugural The Brightonian looks fantastic.
Conrad Brighton

I am really excited you’ve combined your magazines into two formats and hope this is working well for you!

Congratulations on the new Brightonian publication. You have done a wonderful job.

Just emailing to congratulate you on the Hovarian, got my first issue yesterday.  It’s somehow much cleaner and fresher looking than the old Poet’s Pages, I don’t know why that is, but look and content are outstanding.

I have just been able to lay my hands on the July issue and just had to report back straight away. You’ve all done a brilliant job not only with the decision of combining the four old magazines into one, but maintaining the high standard of content and layout in this new publication.
I’m certain the combined magazine will find even more interest than the old one. Well done!
Tilo Brighton

Congratulations on an excellent first edition of the Brightonian. I look forward to future editions and contributing material in the future.
Geoffrey Brighton

The new mags look great!
Mac Brighton

Just to say I love the Hovarian far better than the three separate magazines. Feel’s nicer as a resident of Poets Corner to celebrate the community of Hove as one. So thumbs up from me on this one.
