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.

This year I am holding my Cream Teas on the Lawn event on Thursday 18th June between 2.00 pm and 5.30 pm. We will be supporting Macmillan.

Children are welcome to explore the garden and toys are provided.

We will be baking the scones ourselves, and using the best Wilkins Tiptree jam with clotted cream specially sent up from Devon.  I have been collecting up proper china tea sets to use to serve the teas. We will be asking for a minimum contribution of £4. (Children £1) There will be a raffle, tombola and a variety of stalls including books and plants.

Let’s hope for fine weather!
