The Local Advertiser - Your Guide to Local Business Services in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham area.


30 years of serving local businesses.

The Advertiser (as it’s fondly referred to) is the longest established advertising publication in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham area. 2018 marks the 30th year that it’s been delivered directly to homes and businesses.

The publication encompasses a host of local services and retailers – from sole traders to national companies – in one compact, easy-to-navigate paper. Using our website, you can browse the latest issue online, read previous issues, submit your ads and more.

The Advertiser plays an important role in the local community. Our free listings of non-profit making events help many local organisations gain new members or run events successfully. Residents can advertise their private sale items and at the same time see what our wonderful traders and service providers have to offer.

Many advertisers have been loyal to our publication for a long time – some even from the date it started.  Ultimately, local people like to use local services. That’s why our philosophy is, ‘Buy local and the economy on your doorstep thrives!’

I have been advertising my private art lessons intermittently with Local Ads for several years now, and it never fails to amaze me how much response I get. The word spreads far and wide too. I have several local clients who responded to my advert as well as some who come from Tetbury, Cirencester and the other side of Swindon. This is due to friends or relatives passing on a copy of the advert from the magazine.

I could not be more pleased and have no hesitation in recommending Sally’s advertising magazine.

As a householder I often reference it for work need to be done in my home too. It is a must-read!
