OUR aim from the start was always to grow our audience – and wow are we doing that.

One post from the weekend has been read by more than 13,000 people – so we are well chuffed with that.

In the past seven days alone, we have reached 17,222 people on Facebook. The figure for the month is 33,621.

Bournefree owner Andy Thomas said: “We always knew that the priority from day one was to extend our Reach as much as possible using a multi-media approach.

“That is clearly paying off with our magazine, website and social media.

“And we’ve only just started. We’ve got plenty of new ideas in the pipeline. Exciting times indeed.”
