Why advertise with us?

We specialise in community magazine advertising for small businesses


Affordable – Our advertising rates start at just £25 plus VAT. We have adverts to suit all budgets.

Bi-monthly publication – We have a great shelf life – unlike free newspapers, people do keep the magazine until the next one arrives.  Also, being a bi-monthly publication, this means your money invested in advertising with us goes that much further. For example if you booked a regular quarter page advert and paid by Standing Order, it would only cost £51 per month plus VAT.

Established – We are now in our eleventh year. We are an established, trusted and well received publication that residents look forward to every other month. We get lots of positive feedback from residents and it shows in the success of our advertisers.

Handy A5 size – Colourful and community spirited and full of interesting articles, puzzles and useful local information. Take a look at our latest issue.

Reliable delivery – Excellent dedicated distribution team gets 13,000 copies out within a few days of publication. 12,000 copies go through letterboxes in several neighbouring  villages nestling between the towns of Colchester, Sudbury, Halstead and Braintree.  Furthermore another 1000 are left in villages a little further afield in over 100 outlets.

FREE listing in the website business directory – That’s what you get if you advertise in the magazine.

Advertorial opportunities – Sometimes you just need to explain a little bit more about your business. We can organise this for you.

Full index – Our index at the back of the magazine makes it easy for readers to find you.
