Producing great community magazines with affordable advertising

Wye Local first hit our streets in November 2006 and was followed by Local Beacon in 2009. Since then it has grown into a well respected and useful publication for our area.

Advertising in Wye Local and Local Beacon works. We like to work with each business ensuring they get a good response. Some of our existing advertisers have been with us since the first issue. This speaks volumes. But don’t just take our word for it!

The Wye Local and Local Beacon community magazine has/is:

  • Low-cost advertising - see opposite
  • Hand delivered to homes and businesses in Hay-on-Wye, Cusop, Talgarth & Brecon
  • Delivered to local community points and tourist information centres for residents and visiting families
  • Distributed by the first of every month
  • A shelf life of one month
  • A what’s on section - useful throughout the month
  • Interesting articles, business profiles, competitions, reviews
  • Handy A5 sized magazine for the coffee table
  • A print run of 10,000
  • A social media platform that continues to grow
  • Features local businesses and community news
  • Targeted advertising at affordable prices
If you offer a service, a product or events/classes then Wye Local and Local Beacon community magazine is a prime way to engage with the local residents of this area.

"The Wye Local team are a delight to work with. Nothing is too much trouble. It's a great way to get what's going on at The Bakers' Table to our local customers and very cost effective. We enjoy a discounted rate by booking for three months at a time. And as a receiver, I'm always delighted when it drops through my door, it's a great read and full of useful, local information. I can't recommend Lisa Marie and her team highly enough."
Nicola Willis, The Bakers' Table
"Brecon Cathedral highly recommend the Local Beacon. The staff are always very efficient and helpful and the magazine has a large local distribution. On top of that the prices are very reasonable so the Local Beacon is always our first port of call for advertising.”
Brecon Cathedral
"A great place to advertise - this magazine is distributed so widely and is clearly very popular as it brings lots of new customers to us."
Rebecca Rogers, Acanthus Curtains
"I like to see the local businesses to see what they have to offer. Supporting sole traders and family run businesses is important. The what's on section is helpful and I often use it.”

With two well respected and useful monthly publications under our belts, we’ve launched a similar magazine for the town of Ludlow.

Advertising in our community magazines works. We like to work with each business ensuring they get a good response. Some of our existing advertisers have been with us since the first issue back in 2006. This speaks volumes. But don’t just take our word for it:
"From placing our very first advert in Local Ludlow we had a few customers at our salvage yard the first day it was out! An absolute pleasure to deal with Lisa Marie and her team too! Thank you!"
Ludlow Salvage
" We were delighted to see a new, high-quality, community-focused publication come to the area in the shape of Local Ludlow. Following such a positive response to the advert with multiple new enquiries and our solicitor recognised in the street, we signed up for another three editions!"
Elizabeth Armstrong, MFG Solicitors
" As someone who's been in the publishing industry for 25 years, may I say that what you've achieved with Local Ludlow is nothing short of amazing - you've done a fantastic job."
