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!

Support our town and community. This last year has been one of the most challenging trading periods ever for shops, pubs and other businesses in our area. It’s never been more important to Buy Bassett and support our local economy.

You can also help businesses by following the measures that they have put in place – by following social distancing guidelines in shops. Help get out of lockdown measures and buy local. Keep our towns in business!

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!’

One of the best advertising boards I have used.

In my 30+ years of service I have used many different advertising boards and magazines to showcase and promote my work. However, none have been as helpful and professional as Sally who really has a passion for promoting good and helpful businesses. Sally was so friendly and helpful when I first spoke to her, and she continues to give great customer service. My ads in the advertiser have always received great response rates, and I would recommend them to anyone.
