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

The Advertiser is the longest established advertising publication in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham area. In 2023, it will have been in publication for 35 years with a monthly delivery of 9,000 copies to local homes and businesses across the towns of Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham, as well as the 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!’
