We are the only local media company with journalists based in each of the areas they cover, and we take pride in contributing to and supporting the surrounding areas.

As a West Country business with local offices on the areas that we serve, we are unique in that we have a local multimedia advertising sales team based in the region led by Ria Rickward, who can assist local businesses in creating digital advertising campaigns. We offer advertising formats such as Homepage Takeovers, multi-format and sponsored editorials, and managed Facebook campaigns, all of which deliver outstanding results for local businesses.

Ria comments: “Our team works diligently to explain our digital opportunities and create tailored advertising campaigns for our customers. The majority of our customers who advertise with the Tindle's West Country websites began by advertising solely in our newspapers. As we have developed digital advertising on the websites, I have been particularly pleased with the number of customers who have become repeat advertisers following the success of their initial campaigns. The combined reach of our local print and digital audiences is unmatched, and we are eager to collaborate with local businesses to enhance their business and profile within the town. I am immensely proud of what we can offer to local customers on our website.”
