Advertisers’ Comments

See what our advertisers have to say about the service we offer…


Being a new care agency and start up business in Royal Wootton Bassett, it was a no brainer to use a local advertiser to showcase our community offering. With the help of Sally and her creative flare the response to our adverts have exceeded all expectations and our business has grown. This has enabled us to further embed ourselves within the local community. Honeysuckle Home Care highly recommends The Local Advertiser.

Very pleased with how the advertising has gone this year. The RWB & Lyneham Advertiser is an essential part of our marketing strategy. In a mad world of Instagram and Facebook, you still can’t beat an actual publication through your front door with a world of trades people and services on offer from truly local people. Loved working with Sally for many years and can’t thank her enough for her talent and advice in the creation of advertisements and campaigns.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council have been working with Sally at the Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser for many years and have a great working relationship with her. It is an effortless process to place an advert, we change our piece every month and Sally is at hand to make up the perfect, professional advert for us every time.

The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser is a well-known and trusted place to advertise which offers value for money and keeps residents informed of local services in the community.

I’m Tom Heron of ASP Transfers. I have been advertising with Sally in The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham  Advertiser for about 4yrs. It’s the only advertising I do and unfortunately, I am now having to temporarily withdraw my advert. Not because of its failure but because of its success.

I moved to RWB just over 6yrs ago and started my business about 4yrs ago. I wanted to build my business gradually and with the help of this superb publication and the support of the local community I have done just that. The combination of Sally’s professional and caring approach to local advertising and the local community’s commitment to support local business has brought me to the point where I have so much work that I am unable to take any new clients. But rest assured, when things calm down I will be back.

If you are in this catchment area and want to sustain your small business then this publication comes highly recommended by me.

We are now even looking to take on more staff, largely thanks to your magazine. It really does work for us and the clientele that we aim to attract.

March and April have been successful for business so far! Please can I get back in touch for future advertising?” Thanks again.

Angela Plumpton Mobile Hairdressing

This publication gives us about 80% of our business and people seem to scan it intently for such events. I know advertisers might be a bit complacent after a while, but believe you me there are many people who have moved into the area or suddenly need something local and use this publication.

Getting a lot of jobs from being on front cover – working well!

Other than word of mouth, The Advertiser is almost my main means to get the message out.  I think that it is one of the most used publications in Bassett.  I certainly try and get all my traders from these adverts, as I feel if they have lasted in your publication over the years they cannot be that bad.

One of the best advertising publications I have used.

In my 30+ years of service I have used many different advertising publications 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.

The free buy/sale advertising facility that is provided by the Local Advertiser is excellent. Simple to use, and a great service to the community.

Free notice board. A well run and successful sale board. Sally is pleasant and helpful.

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.

Mick Haren Sandymount Construction Ltd

Thank you for putting the advert in again for me over the past few months. It works really well in generating more customers. Unfortunately I’ll have to cancel my advert as I now have enough business from it for now.

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!

I have been dealing with various advertising magazines and papers over my career and cannot recommend ‘The RWB & Lyneham Advertiser’ enough. Sally has been a true professional from the start and continues to impress with her passion for the magazine, the art work and her genuine, nice friendly attitude. I am very happy with the feedback from new customers that the ad generates on a monthly basis. Keep up the good work Sally!

I only advertise in The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser. I gave up the directories like Thompsons and Yellow Pages as I get a lot more enquiries from the Advertiser. I get plenty of work out of it. People like to use a local business and that’s why I advertise in this local magazine.

Dean Saunders HCS (wilts) Ltd

Out of all the advertising we do online and in print The Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham Advertiser brings us the most return for the money we invest in advertising. Locals like to use local companies and refer to the magazine a lot for reference. We have been advertising with the Advertiser for over 20 years.

Paul Ward Autocolour

I’m not able to renew my run of advertising again this time because my advert in your magazine has been SO SUCCESSFUL! Beyond belief actually. I’ve always had a good response before too but I just can’t take on any more work. Thank you. I’ll be in touch.

Brian Jones Property Maintenance

We have tried all kinds of marketing and nothing has brought us as much work as the Advertiser. Not only a great publication, but Sally is a pleasure to work with. Would have no hesitations in recommending the Advertiser.

Our research shows us that ALL our cleaning work has come from the advert in The  Advertiser and not from any other method, which means our target audience is those that read The Advertiser.

Advertising in the Local Ads has increased our income in the final quarter of the year by 20%, proving that our client base turn to Local Ads to fill their needs.

Neil Tinley Cleaning Companions

We have advertised in the Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham Advertiser for over two years and are delighted with the wide distribution and the friendly,  professional service we receive.

Every issue has brought interest in our service and we will continue to advertise in this publication for the foreseeable future. We have no hesitation in recommending the Advertiser to other companies in the area wishing to increase their visibility.

The ad has been really sucessful – so much so that I need to catch up a bit before I take any more work on!

Karen Valdez KV Accountancy

Lime Kiln Leisure Centre has been using ‘Local Ads’ Royal Wootton Bassett & Lyneham publication and have seen positive results with customers coming into the centre and saying they have seen our adverts.

Our most recent advert is for Easter holiday activities and we are seeing an increase in holiday course bookings.

Sally is very helpful with creating our visuals and keeping within our corporate guidelines and turns round jobs in super quick time!

Local Ads is about encouraging the residents of RWB to shop locally & find and use local tradesmen and services. Run by a local business woman, advertised in by local businesses & delivered locally – keeping the High Street, local businesses & tradesman of RWB alive.  This is why I support and advertise in Local Ads.
