Linda Brazeau - Sudbury, Ontario, Canada 31 January 2011
For many years now, my friend(who subscribes to the magazine)has loaned me her copies of the Peoples Friend. I can't possibly put into adequate words the enjoyment that this magazine brings me - the pictures, recipes, crafts, stories and articles (I particulary enjoy "The Farmer and His Wife"). It is readily understandable why this magazine has been in publication for so long. Thank you for many hours of reading pleasure and keep up the good work.

The People''s Friend
This magazine is passed onto me by friends. I think ity is the equal or better than most Australian magazines. I eagerly await its coming. I enjoy the stories because they are heart-warming and non-violent.
Catherine Ross - Glenrothes Fife 08 September 2009
I was introduced to the "Friend" during my childhood. Both my grandmother and my mother read it. I really love the heart-warming stories and the many interesting articles each week.Throughout the years, it has kept to its wholesome features and high moral standards which is sadly lacking in many other publications. I will continue to read it for many years to come. It gives me so much pleasure.
Anne Kell (nee Roberts) - Perth, Western Australia 19 June 2009
I have read Peoples Friend as a youngster in the North of England (Co Durham) and 40 years later and living in Perth, Western Australia, I am still an avid reader of The Friend. I look forward to it each week, and it brings back lovely memories of my former home
Louise Durrant - Boston Lincolnshire 23 January 2009

Anonymous - bedfordshire. 02 July 2007
I put comfort for the review because that is what I feel about this magazine. It is wholesome and we need more of that these days. At one time everything was wholesome including on T.V> which it isnt now, so this magazine is very welcome and a nice read. It is also informative andenjoyable in every way.
