Welcome to Handy
Need an easy and affordable way to advertise in Costessey? Say hello to Handy! We can help you reach thousands of potential new customers.
Jam packed with interesting articles, puzzles, competitions and many local businesses, Costessey households rely on the Handy magazine as a source of information. It's the perfect way to let people know your business exists!
Handy is run independently from home by graphic designer Lee Seaman. After realising there was no local business guide covering the whole of Costessey, Lee set up Handy in 2020 to help small businesses advertise, and support them in what would become an extremely difficult time at the start of the pandemic.
Handy has grown to become an invaluable source of local information for Costessey residents, as well as an effective advertising tool for small businesses.
Why it works
People look forward to receiving their Handy magazine every 3 months. While leaflets and other junk mail get binned as soon as they arrive, our magazine is kept in the home and referred to again and again.
Handy is a bright, colourful, eye-catching magazine. When it becomes available to pick up in local shops, it flies off the shelves. And because print advertising has better recall than online advertising, readers remember your advert much more easily.
How it's delivered
Handy is reliably delivered by Royal Mail with the rest of your post. We reach every home and business in Costessey, that’s 7,400 properties and counting! Our magazine is also available to pick up in locations around Norwich – more information on this coming soon!
All previous issues of our magazine are available to read online. We also occasionally get requests to have the magazine delivered to residents who don’t live in Costessey – we’re always happy to oblige!
