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 started to advertise on the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham advertiser last year after a break of a few years. From our very first advert  we have always had a great response, and the work generated from that first advert has more than paid for a full year’s advertising. We continue to get a great return on the adverts and we now also realise that locally there is a section of the community that only use the local Advertiser to source trades people etc.
