Advertising in the Lingfield and Area Community News
Community News gives some of the most highly targeted advertising in our region!
Community News is produced with the help of grants funding and volunteer work but we also carry a percentage of paid advertising for local businesses which covers most of the production costs.
We publish four editions per year, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Closing dates for submissions are shown on the homepage of this site and in the latest Community News edition. You can also get a reminder email by joining our email list - on the home page.
For each edition, over 4,000 copies are hand delivered by our volunteers to homes and businesses in Lingfield, Crowhurst, Dormansland, Dormans Park, Felcourt and parts of Newchapel, Haxted, Horne, and Baldwins Hill.
Your advert is also displayed in our online edition, published on the CN website.
With prices starting at £30 for a quarter page advert, up to a full page back cover - appearing both in print and online in our web edition - we offer advertising options for all budgets.
Please send your advert or enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org
Using your own artwork? Please use .pdf, .eps, .jpg or .tiff file type. We reserve the right to alter your advert without notice but will only do so for technical production reasons. For PDFs please embed the fonts.
Need artwork help? Provide text and any images/logos and we can create a simple advert for you with the layout in our house style.
Occasional editions are printed with colour, however black and white is our standard print, so we’ll change any colour adverts to grey for printing. The pdf's on the website are in colour though.
Community News is produced with the help of grants funding, volunteer work and paid advertising for local businesses, which covers most of the production costs. Usually, we are able to cover the costs of partial colour printing, which always includes the front and back covers. Your advert will certainly help towards this, however, please note colour is not guaranteed.
