As this is a community magazine local charities, clubs, associations and other local not-for-profit organisations receive a 50% discount on the commercial rates for black & white advertisements shown. Consult the advertising manager to check if your local community organisation is eligible for this concession.

Design Service

If you cannot provide an advertisement in any of the above formats we offer a free design service, laid up from your draft ideas, but we need to have copy not later than 10th of the month preceding the month of publication. Please send the wording, any other requirements and chosen design letter shown on the Advertising Page Size Guide for your advertisement to the Advertising Manager.


Deadline for Submission of Advertisements

If you intend to provide your advertisement ready for publication in one of the above formats you should book space with the Advertising Manager by 12th of the month and supply the advertisement by 15th of the month preceding the month of publication.

Meeting the above deadlines will ensure that your advertisement is included. We will do our best to include an advertisement delayed beyond the deadline but this cannot be guaranteed.


Terms of Business for Commercial Advertisements

Invoices are due for payment on presentation. We need to pay our printer promptly and as a community publication we need to be in funds to make that payment. Invoices outstanding after 30 days may incur an administration fee of £10 per month for every month thereafter until the accumulated debt has been settled in full. In such circumstances future business with that advertiser will be on the basis of advance payment only.
