WELCOME TO HOOK FOCUS
Welcome to Hook Focus, the village magazine of Hook, in North East Hampshire
Hook Focus is Hook’s authoritative magazine and since 1973 it has carried news of future Community Events and reports on all that has been happening in Hook. Focus is managed by Hook volunteers and is independent of all other bodies.
So what does the magazine contain?
Editorial, news and reports contributed by local organisations. Regular items include Schools Parents Associations, sports clubs, Churches, leisure activities for all ages from babies to pensioners, the Parish, District and County Councils and youth facilities to name but a few. Advertisements by local businesses are particularly helpful to those moving to Hook.
Who reads it?
Our team of volunteer distributors deliver monthly (except August) to 1,200 homes and we believe that, as a result of copies being passed on to family members, Focus is read in 2,000 of Hook’s 3,000 homes. In addition 200 copies are sold for us by Trees Newsagent, the Post Office in the Hook shopping area and Hartletts Cafe.
How do I get my copy of Focus?
There are several ways of securing your copy of Focus. See the Subscriptions page for full information.
Hartletts Café, Tesco,
and The Post Office
Deadline for next issue,

Hook Focus Business Advertising
Our business advertising space for the Focus year, April 2022 to March 2023, is now on sale. Hook Focus, which is produced and distributed by volunteers, relies heavily on the revenue from our business advertising, so please support Focus by advertising your business with us.
Hook Focus is a community orientated magazine providing a wide variety of articles and information every month covering the many facets of village life providing a great opportunity for local businesses to advertise their services.
Our new advertising year begins in April, this year we have new advertising opportunities; advertising will also be available for shorter periods of 3 month and 6 month terms as well as the usual full year and more space for those who wish to advertise in colour. In addition, there is also the exciting future prospect of this magazine reaching many more households by being available online. With this in mind, to meet our increased costs, there will be a small rise in the advertising rates. Our advertising rates have not increased for several years and so, even with the small rise, our rates will still be highly competitive. Our rates for 2022/2023 are as follows:
Black & White Adverts from April 22
3 Months 6 Months 1 Year
6 x 6cm £30 £60 £100
6 x 12cm £60 £120 £200

1/2 page £180 £360 £600
Charges for colour adverts are double
All charges are subject to change from April 2023
