Here's what other councils have said about this service...

Breakthrough Communications have efficiently and speedily assisted Godalming Town Council with their e-Newsletter setup and training service.


They have talked us through every step of the way and their after setup support is excellent.


The whole package is simple and excellent value for money and we are looking forward to sending out our first e-newsletter.

Godalming Town Council

Even though we already have a monthly printed newsletter, noticeboards, website, Facebook and Twitter we were still being told that we didn’t communicate with residents enough! We were really impressed with the promptness and skills of Breakthrough Communications, and their willingness to come to our office, set up the eNewsletter service and sit down with council officers to explain in plain English how it works and how to use it.


As a result, we now have many of our residents signed up to receive emails from us. We can now send them emails about important matters or key issues – and it’s making a huge difference.
