From the publisher

Founded in 1869, The People’s Friend is the oldest women’s weekly magazine in the world. The first issue was dated 13th January 1869, and its mission statement was clear from the start.

“We intend that fully one half of the ‘Friend’ shall be devoted to fiction... the Friend being intended for fireside reading, nothing will be admitted into its columns having the slightest tendency to corrupt the morals either of old or young.”

Successive editors have remained true to those principles and to the avowal that the Friend should be a magazine for ordinary people, by ordinary people. The Friend grew and thrived through social upheaval, wars, strikes, financial crashes and natural disasters. It continued dispensing entertainment, instruction, comfort and good cheer to its readers. The Friend became a constant in its readers’ lives; a true friend to turn to in times of trouble.

Today, the magazine is known, loved and trusted worldwide, with readers in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada as well as in the UK. Aimed primarily at the over-60s market, it’s a magazine for people who love to read quality fiction, and who are looking for uplifting, feel-good entertainment.

The weekly title is packed with:

• Quality short stories

• Two exclusive serial instalment

• Delicious cooking inspiration

• Craft ideas

• Puzzles

• Gardening tips

• Travel and health advice

There are also 17 The People’s Friend Specials every year, published three-weekly, which contain an inspiring, adventurous mix of fiction and features, and the fortnightly The People’s Friend Pocket Novels, each one a longer novel-length story in an easy-to-read, larger-print format.

Enjoy getting my favourite magazine delivered each week, have been buying it for over 30 years and not having to think about buying it at the supermarket is fantastic.

Wonderful reading for all, the grandchildren love their stories too. The recipes are good and simple to do, knitting and tips also excellent

This was bought as a gift for my 82year old mother, she loves getting her magazine each week through the post, and enjoys every page of it, well done

I love this magazine. It's full of really entertaining, uplifting stories that make me feel good no matter what kind of day I'm having. And at a time when I hardly dare leave a newspaper lying around for fear of what my young grandchildren might see, I have no such worries with The People's Friend. It's good for when I'm helping them with their homework, too, because unlike so many modern magazines, the spelling and grammar are still spot on.

This is a very good magazine, filled mainly with fiction reads. There are a lot of short stories and usually one or two serials. However, there are also informative articles. Therre is often an informative article about the location on the cover - the only disadvantage being it is mainly Scotland, and if you don't live in scotland, it seems a waste of the rest of our lovely isles. There are some cooking articles and also about financial aspects. One very good feature is the medical column, and there are also a few puzzles, but not much variety. Fortunately (for me), it does not focus on beauty, fashion, subjects that are heavily covered by more expensive glossies.
