INFORMATION FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS

If your are a member of a charitable or community organisation then The Lossie Local and/or Forres Focus may be an ideal way to let residents know all about your group.  You could list a forthcoming event in the ‘What’s On’ section, place an advert giving information about the services you offer, or even better submit an editorial and photos.  Any material that will make the magazine more interesting to read will be considered, so please don’t hesitate to send it in.

HOW TO GET YOUR INFOMATION PUBLISHED

There are a few ways to get your information published, either free of charge or at reduced rates:

‘What’s On’ Section.  In every issue there will be a ‘What’s On’ section, where you will be able to list your community/charity/club event or meeting (e.g. brief description, dates, times, contact numbers etc.) free of charge (an enhanced box on these pages will cost £5).  Please don’t forget to check the delivery dates for each issue to ensure the timing suits your event.

If you’d like more space to include extra information, photographs, editorial etc then there are a couple of ways to go about it:

–  Submit Editorial.  I will always try to find space for your ecitoral (including logos/photos etc. if you have them) free of charge, as this is what makes the magazine interesting to read.  Send everything that you have and I’ll do my best to fit it in, but bear in mind I may have to edit it down depending on how much space I have available.

–  Adverts.  If you would like to submit an advert for your non-profit making organisation then I’ll include these at a reduced community rate.  Prices are £15 for a quarter page and £25 for a half page (unfortunately full pages will be charged at the normal price as I’m unable to fit any other adverts on to offset the print costs).

Please see the ‘advertising’ tab for copy deadline dates, but the earlier I receive your information the easier it is for me and the more chance there is of finding space.  If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
