Surbiton's Community Newspaper

THE GOOD LIFE: Readable, chatty, lively, different, quirkily shaped and full of dazzling colour

9,000 copies distributed to homes in Surbiton, Tolworth, Berrylands and Long Ditton.

The Good Life is free, publishing 6 issues a year. We distribute the paper with care, and take 'no free newspaper' signs seriously.

Since our launch in early 2012, we’ve built an excellent relationship with our readers, who tell us they like the fact that we are truly local, we support the area, and that we produce a readable, informative paper which enjoys the humour and unpredictability of life. Many pass the paper on to friends.

All our staff, contributors and distributors live locally, and we have extensive journalistic experience and a wealth of local knowledge.

We support Surbiton's community events and its independent businesses, especially the Maple Road farmers’ market - the area’s most popular and successful regular community event.

We are the only publication which offers comprehensive coverage of the arts in Surbiton.

We love hearing from anyone staging events, running a club, sharing news and pictures, or recalling Surbiton's past.

We’re keen for Surbiton companies and sole traders to use our highly competitive advertising rates to boost their business.
