We offer four different types of advert opportunity within the paper:
- Run of paper – priced per column/centimetre
- Large display adverts – special rates for full and half page adverts
- Front cover adverts – high impact pre-set sized adverts
- Directory – the popular choice for local tradespeople
Run of paper
Cost per single column centimetre = £4.20
To calculate the price of your advert take the depth in centimetres by the number of columns wide by £4. Some examples are shown below:
|A 5 cm x 1 col advert||£21|
|A 6cm x 2 col advert||£50.40|
|A 10cm x 3 col advert||£126|
If you place adverts for more than 1 week, you can then apply the following series discounts
It is not necessary to book consecutive weeks in order to qualify for the discount. Alternate weeks, monthly or specified dates are all possible and the total number of weeks booked will dictate the discount.
Large display adverts
Large savings on the single column centimetre rate are available for full and half page display adverts. The one-off rates are:
The same discounts set out above for run of paper advertising apply to full and half page adverts.

|5cm x 1 col||£40|
|6cm x 2 col||£85|
|13cm x 2 col||£145|
There are no series discounts on front cover bookings.
We know that readers keep copies of the paper and refer to it when they need a service or tradesperson.
