Advertising in the Sundridge Village News

There are two good reasons to advertise in the Sundridge Village News: it supports a good cause, all money raised going to charity and most importantly, since 1894 the Parish Newsletter in its various forms has been a reliable source of finding useful names, addresses and telephone numbers. The last black and white paper copy was the December 2016 – January 2017 edition and many people have kept that issue simply for the contact details. A simple but valued listing. The Sundridge Village News has been published since October 2017. There are 10 issues a year, the December/January and July/August issues being combined, it is produced in full colour with a mostly electronic distribution. The current and every back issue is on this website.

Although it is mainly distributed by email, there are some printed copies for those without computer access. The Sundridge Village News is free to its readers and as it is “by subscription” it is only sent to those requesting a copy, so is both valued and, most importantly for an advertiser, read! The website has a listing of useful contact details, doctors’ surgery numbers, Council and MP contact details and the like. If there is something you are looking for, it is a good place to start and it really is updated regularly. You may currently find your basic details, or those of a competitor, included but these will be removed and only paid advertisements will be published in future. Your advertisement will appear in the same list that your potential customers will see when they are looking for the doctor’s telephone number – they might find your ad when your services are just what they are looking for and, importantly, they will know that they will be able to find your details in the future.

The Parish Newsletter in all its forms has been a good source of finding local businesses and a successful income generator for its advertisers for over 100 years.

The website also has a calendar (though rather empty at the moment, for all the obvious reasons). Local organisations, groups and charities can have their events listed for free which is appreciated by many and attracts traffic to the site If you advertise in the Sundridge Village News your special events can, if requested, be added to that calendar.
