Advertise with us

The Association publishes “The Guide”, a monthly A5 sized magazine of 20-30 pages of local news, activities, features and reports from our affiliated clubs and social organisations. The “Letters” section usually has many contributors and is a good barometer of the local issues that concern residents. The Guide has a free monthly circulation of 2,000 to our member households. Our members show their interest and commitment to the local community by subscribing annually, and as such, they are keen to read the Guide when it is delivered. Overall local readership is 3 - 4,000 in the Raynes Park and West Barnes wards. Copies of the Guide are also distributed to our local libraries and other places where the community meets.

We offer advertising space in a variety of formats, to suit both small and larger businesses, from “Small Ads”, or classified advertisements, to a range of Display Advertisements. Our prices are competitive and do not attract VAT.
