Please note, like most publications payment must be made in advance of the publication, otherwise we will not print your advert.

There is a trade section at the back of the magazine with other adverts placed on pages throughout the magazine - we will try and accommodate your requirements whenever possible.

You can also sponsor an issue and have a company banner on the front page and a strap line on alternate pages inside, or you may prefer to write an advertorial piece advertising you business.
