Archive for the ‘Media coverage of Barnes’ Category

There is a full page article about Barnes in the June edition of the interiors magazine – LIVINGetc (out now).  It has some lovely illustrations, mentions many of our shops and shows the unique products you can buy here.

The EVENING STANDARD had a full TWO page spread last evening (19th May) in the Homes and Property section.  This was packed with information, mentioned loads of shops in all parts of Barnes and included illustrations of the pond, the Sun Inn, Barnes fish shop and The Cheese shop, as well as (of course) many houses!   There was also a very nice picture of Tim Henman!

Finally TIME AND LEISURE, a more local magazine but with a distribution of 50,000 (covering all of our neighbours as far as Kingston) is publishing articles in June and July on Barnes. 

If you know of publicity for Barnes that is about to happen please let me know and I’ll put it on this blog and elswhere.  Also if you have any contacts I’ll do my best to feed them information that we hope they will publish. Sue.

The secrets of Barnes village are out!  HOMES and GARDENS are publishing an article in their April edition and LIVING etc are doing the same in their June edition.  The more locally distributed TIME and LEISURE (distribution 50,000 homes) is publishing an article in June and again in their July edition, which is specifically about the Fair.  We are hoping to be interviewed soon, by Radio Jackie about the Olympic Studios (which has just been sold by EMI).  Barnes was also featured on TV last week (albeit rather briefly) on House Gift.  The team travelled all the way from Wimbledon to seek gifts at Tobias and the Angel and the Dining Room Shop. It seems word has got out….!
