The Ewell & Stoneleigh Connection was started in November 2005, by Carolyne Hurst with a bit of help from her family. Starting with just 2,000 copies, it has grown to 12,600 copies and is now the biggest little monthly magazine in the area!


The Epsom Connection started in October 2014, following requests from advertisers and local businesses. The first edition was 6,400 copies and it has now grown to 7,450 copies a month, with deliveries in and around Epsom town.


The SM7 magazine was started back in 2006 by two local residents, with this bi-monthly magazine being distributed to over 4000 homes & businesses in the Banstead and Nork communities. In October 2014 The SM7 magazine was acquired by Hurst Publications Ltd. In February 2015 The SM7 became a monthly publication with a name change to the Banstead Connection and has now increased to 5300 copies a month.
