I used 2 tradesmen out of The Works last week and was very impressed with both of them, GKR Plumbing and Paul Cross Joinery.  I will definitely be using them and the book again.   Thank you.

Lincoln Resident.

Always great variety of professionals and local trades people.

P Waterfield - Local Resident

We have full confidence in your brochure if and when we need other services to get a reliable trades person.

Mr R Taylor - Local Resident

Extremely impressed. I started up my business in February this year and as soon as my advert came out in March’s edition, the work has come rolling in. For a small local business like mine that wants local customers, it’s definitely worth advertising in The Works.

Paul Wicklen from Dar-Linc

I recently advertised in The Works and was very pleased with the professional manner in which I was dealt with. It was a cost effective way to reach a target population and I was pleased with the responses it generated. I would recommend anyone who wants to create interest and awareness of their company/services offered in the Lincoln area to advertise with The Works.

Kara Terry from PetMatey

Having advertised with other larger agencies, who seem to just want your cash and then forget you, The Works has proved to be a most pleasant alternative. Better value for money, better customer service & better quality, nothing is or was to much trouble for them & because of this I have every faith in their ability in promoting my services, Thank you.

Gary Davies from AlphaLocks

‘Hello, Many Thanks for the fantastic advertising in The Works in the Saxilby area. I am now interested in advertising in the Cherry Willingham area too.’

Adi Riley from AMR Plumbing & Handyman Services

I would thoroughly recommend The Works as a positive source of advertising. Rob & Sheena have a very welcoming manner and always ready with a nice coffee and helpful advice. I am able to target my customers with a more efficient approach due to the range of areas available. Since joining The Works 6 months ago I found no need to advertise anywhere else.

Joff Gainey from I-Hoe Garden Services Ltd

Advertising in The Works Business Directory has enabled me to obtain new clients in the local area. I have been advertising for 1 year and have been pleased by the response I have had. Sheena and Rob have always provided a service that is efficient, polite and friendly, listening to the needs of the customer. The areas they cover are ideal and you can choose where you would like to advertise. I am always sent a copy of the directories and seen the popularity for the product grow. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending anyone to advertise in “The Works”.

Neil Jones from Neil Jones Builder & Contractor

I look forward to your book, have always found the services that I need in it.

D Farrell - Local Resident

I thank you for your support over the last 12 months or so and will certainly recommend The Works to any other tradesman. The response I have had from households has been very good and they all tell me that they use The Works for everything. Best Regards

David Atkinson from David Atkinson Plumbing Services

My husband and I moved from Buckinghamshire to Lincoln two years ago (we have a son living up here) and we have no regrets at all. Your ‘The Works’ directory has been an enormous help to us and we have availed ourselves of some of your advertised services.

Deryth Laing - Local Resident

We always look forward to The Works coming through the letterbox. We have used several of your advertisers

Jennys Jams - Local Resident

We advertised our Spring Fair in the events listings of "The Works". The event was amazingly well attended and loads of people said that they had seen the advertisement - it works!

Beth Tyrrel - Tyrrel Consulting Ltd

Its a great little booklet. Its by my telephone, incase of emergency. Better than the phone directory. Thank you.

James Delo - Local Resident

Wonderful - have already used one of your advertisers. Very pleased.

Mrs M Cattle - Local Resident

Interesting and helpful.

Denise Williams - Local Resident

Brilliant for information locally.

Eileen Mills - Local Resident

Useful little booklet, small enough to keep in a drawer and introduces you to businesses you might never find in all our local villages.

Carol Green - Local Resident


S. Ellis - Local Resident

Very interesting and useful information.

Miss Janet Owen - Local Resident

Once again many thanks for the free events notice in The Works Business Directory in April. Having advertised the event in many different publications including targeted advertising to families with disabled children, I was pleasantly surprised that the advertising with the highest response rate was The Works! A testimony to the success of the directory that so many people take the time to read it.

Aimee - Grow my profit

What can I say!! From Sheena & Rob to the fab girls & not forgetting Jon we are always pleased with eveything you do. Thank you.

Waterfront hair - Customer

I think you are extremely innovative and daring - first of all for realising the need for such a publication and secondly for doing the research which can be quite tedious at times and then putting it all together; and coming up with such a great, little, helpful booklet. Only today i used it to find a carpet cleaner. I like the booklet because it is so up-to-date, innovativeand easy to use I keep it in my handbag 'cos its easy to carry around being small & light and I never know when i might need to refer to it.

Megan - Local Resident

Many of our customers say that our directories are Useful, Helpful, Good, Interesting and Very Informative

Local Residents

This is the first time I had looked through it - I am most impressed.

Sarah Holmes - Local Resident

The Works always works for us!

C & S Clearing Services - Advertiser

Great for local business advertising across Lincoln. A useful resource for households to get access to local businesses

Paintechnics - Advertiser

What a great response I had to your advert in The Works for Friends of Candles. Thanks to you I have several new members and lots of people turned up for the Champagne and Strawberries at the Cathedral. I am a big believer in advertising and you have proved me right, so i will be persuading the Candles committee to continue advertising in The Works next year. Your free advertsing this year has been very helpful and its not over yet with the Ball and Ladies Luncheon in November and December, so I would like to say a big thank you to you for supporting Candles Charity and helping to make our events even more successful.

Kathryn Ledgard - Candles

I'd like to say a big thank you for putting the piece in your magazine telling people about our Open Gardens recently - we had a wonderful turnout and I know that a lot of people said that they'd found out about it through reading their local magazines. So THANK YOU so much for your kind help.

Rosemary Smith - Halfway Home Dog Rescue

Carry on publishing The Works - Its the best regularly UPDATED independent business and services directory.
