WHO WE ARE
A BIT OF HISTORY
The Seaside News is the longest running publication of its kind in the area.
Started in September 1998, the magazine has developed from a single colour A5 publication, with a circulation of 5,000 copies – to the full colour B5, 64-page publication it is today, currently with a monthly circulation of 17,000 copies.
In addition to the paper version, the Seaside News has been available to view in digital form (online) since August 2014.
No other publication is delivered to the towns we hand deliver the magazine to every month.
We cover 99% of all homes in the following towns, every month of the year:
PORTHCAWL, SOUTH CORNELLY, NORTH CORNELLY, KENFIG, MAUDLAM, PYLE, KENFIG HILL, CEFN CRIBWR, PENYFAI & LALESTON.
A captive audience awaits your business….
This direct distribution to homes (as opposed to just being dropped in shops), we believe, is an extremely important factor you need to consider when deciding where to advertise.
25 years of the Seaside News, with more than 90% of advertisers being ‘regulars’.
A significant number of our advertisers have actually been with us right from the start - back in 1998! The ‘proof is in the pudding’ as the saying goes! These businesses are on long-term advertising deals - getting regular local business, by advertising regularly with us.
Don’t just take our word for it though! Get in touch with any business in the current issue to see what they have to say about advertising with us - you wont get a better recommendation than that!
