Grow Your Business With About Thetford

Our readers and advertisers are at the heart of everything we do at About Thetford and are integral to our success. We simply can’t function without them! Every month we aim to create a magazine that is interesting and informative to read and a great place for our advertisers to showcase their businesses, events and activities.

We reach over 60,000 readers monthly and distribute 156,000 copies annually and enjoy working in partnership with both contributors and advertisers. We know it works by the large number of both who return time and again, in fact some have been with us from the very beginning in 2006.

We are quite simply waving the flag for all things good in Thetford and the surrounding area. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what some of our advertisers and readers say about the benefits of working with About Thetford.

“Reaches the heart of the community”

“We advertise with About Thetford because it gets to the heart of the community and Thetford Garden Centre is the heart of the community as well so it’s all about local people and getting out there to them.”
Julian Chittock – Thetford Garden Centre

“Core Market”

“Advertising with the About Thetford allows us to reach our core market, the people who matter to our business – the people of Thetford and surrounding villages”.
Chilterns Estate Agents

“Very pleased with the increase in bookings”

“Our business of running coach trips covers the Thetford area and we felt we were underrepresented with advertising in the locality. Since we have advertised in the About Thetford magazine, we have been very pleased with the increase in bookings and brochure requests seen.”

Ian Colman – IC Travel

“Nothing but praise”

I have been advertising in the About Thetford Magazine for some time now and have nothing but praise for the publication. It`s a common saying that “The best form of advertising is word of mouth”. I agree wholeheartedly with those words as I have had many referrals over the years, but there are groups of people who do not have, for whatever reason, friends, family and work colleagues, so this is where a local well put together magazine like the About Thetford comes to the fore, with good information and content and is poked through the front door letter box without fail every month and provides a great link with everything that`s going on in our local area, with the bonus of no cost as it’s completely free.
Peter Chimonides – Fix A Leak

“Positive Local Reputation”

“We advertise with About Thetford because of their positive local reputation and high levels of readership. Most people look through the magazine whether it’s cover to cover or looking for local events.”
Hassan Mhamood – Best Beds Direct

“First choice”

“Our business M & J Feet & Health Practice is based in the centre of Thetford and serves our local community. The About Thetford Magazine has been an ideal place for our business to advertise as the magazine informs local people about the many services and products we offer. For our business it is our first choice when considering advertising, it is good value, offers a good service and above all is effective, all of which is essential when you are a small business.”
Jo Mountjoy-Dixon – M&J Footcare Practice

“Community focused”

As a small local charity, we really appreciate the invaluable support from About Thetford. Many of the people we support everyday are not online and struggle to access services. About Thetford offers a vital source of focused information and support for many who may otherwise feel isolated.

Citizens Advice Diss, Thetford & District

“We look forward to the magazine each month”

“There’s something for everyone, it’s great if you need a trade, or to find out what’s going on.”
Jackie, Chris and Gloria, Residents

“Cover To Cover With Information”

Who would have thought that a magazine all about the town would be so glossy, so full of information and so free! I love its independence, it is beholden to no one. It is cover to cover with information about what is going on in the town, information about the clubs and societies and the adverts are the place to find good, reliable tradespeople and suppliers. In my opinion you couldn’t ask for more, yet you do get more because it is delivered to your door every month for free.
Mike Wabe, Resident

It’s not just in print that you can enjoy About Thetford magazine – we’ve got a fantastic new website, where you can read digital versions of the magazine along with all the news we can’t fit in our monthly publication. 2024 will be a momentous year for us as we launch our About Thetford app in the coming months.
