About Local-Ad

Local-Ad Ltd has been advertising Local business since 1985.  First of all we started out distributing a small photocopied 4 page-leaflet but this has now developed into a professionally printed booklet that is far-reaching and door-to-door delivered with a large team of distribution staff putting our books into shops and through front doors across Essex.

Because we are a local business we know our environment which has helped us to advertise tradesmen and find them work. Lots of our existing Customers have been with us for many years, proving that we can provide a cheap and successful advertising option.

We currently provide magazines for 5 areas, Maldon & Heyridge, Burnham & Villages, Chelmsford & District, Tiptree & Villages and Witham & District.

Not only do we provide magazine advertisement we also operate an Online Business Directory with the ability to leave feedback on a business thus providing a safer community for everyone. We can help eliminate unwanted and poor quality tradespeople.

Bell Meadow Day, August 27th 2017

Now in its 13th year this traditional country fair, which celebrates the best of rural life, has become a popular event in the Essex summer diary, offering entertainment for all the family; there really will be something for everyone to enjoy in a wonderful rural setting.

Daytime events from 12.30pm include demonstrations and stalls with traditional crafts, rural skills and ever popular activities including: Competition Tent, Pets Corner, Pony Rides, Children’s Entertainer, Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Refreshments and Homemade Cakes, Breads, Cookies , Sweets and Jam, a Burger Van, Hog Roast, Ice Cream, Hot Doughnuts and of course the Beer Tent and Prosecco Tent.

With live music throughout the day. Traditional games & stalls plus displays of traditional rural skills and crafts, agricultural machinery. Arena activities include Dog Display and Fly Fishing Demonstration plus family games and events. With live music on offer throughout the day, the entertainment will culminate in the evening with the amazing ‘Jupiter Ray’ who return to Woodham Walter by popular demand following their fantastic appearance last year.

Woodham Walter is a hidden gem of a village which boasts a traditional old-fashioned community feel. There is a primary school with about 100 children, 2 golf courses, a brand new holiday lodge park, 3 pubs plus the only surviving Elizabethan church in Essex built in 1563. The village is well worth a visit and on the day of the event, Sunday August Bank Holiday, Woodham Walter (just off the A414 between Danbury and Maldon) will be buzzing with excitement and atmosphere.
