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

Please note: Due to holiday closures over Christmas, the deadline for submitting adverts to be included in the January edition is 10th December latest.


Over 30 years of serving local businesses and the community of Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham!

The Advertiser (as it’s fondly referred to) is the longest established advertising publication in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham area. In 2018 it celebrated its 30th year of publication and delivery to local homes and businesses across both of the towns and surrounding villages.

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!’
