Preparation of Adverts – Adverts should be prepared to the correct dimensions, either in Word or High Quality PDF (ie min 300dpi) and emailed. Alternatively we are more than happy to make adverts from scratch at no extra charge. Due to the time involved in doing so, we require constituent parts of such adverts by noon 2 days before the published Copy Date.

Timescales – Due to the tight timescales in getting the magazines to the Royal Mail by the Friday following our copy date for delivery, we print the day after our published copy date. All of our articles are proof read before being placed in the magazine. We are happy to accept general articles and print ready adverts up until noon on Copy Date. However, due to the length and complexity of proof reading and formatting Political Columns and Community Council Minutes we require these by noon the day before the published Copy Date.
