Meet the Publisher - Stefan Reynolds

Stefan started Vantage Publishing having seen the need for local community magazines in the Surrey Hills area. The first magazine was published in April 2009, delivered for free by the Royal Mail to 16,487 homes in the Godalming area, and was well received as it uniquely concentrated on the local area, with charity news, community and events information as well as articles written by and for local people. Since then it has grown to five local magazines reaching over 125,000 homes every month.

Stefan also publishes Your View, a weekly community email which goes to over 28,000 subscribers. Vantage Publishing also recently started a book publishing division, which has helped a number of local authors see their book in print.

Our Founder - Guy Hanson

Guy spent 43 years working in local media as sales director and publisher of local newspapers and magazines that serve communities. He based any sale on a relationship basis, with no hard sell. He liked to work with businesses and learn what they wish to achieve, to then help bring about marketing campaigns that worked again and again. Guy had a passion for publishing and would welcome the opportunity to sit with customers and discuss how Winchester Resident Magazine would be a essential part of their marketing strategy. Very sadly Guy died in November 2022, greatly admired by his many colleagues, customers and friends.
