Advertising in the Borough Diary

The Borough Diary - the newspaper of Basildon Borough Council Unique Coverage

Basildon Council's Borough Diary is produced in full colour four times a year. It is the only newspaper to be distributed free to all of the 78,000 homes across the borough. Its blanket coverage includes the towns of Basildon, Billericay, Wickford and Laindon. No other paper comes close to matching this reach. Additional copies are distributed via council offices, sports centres and libraries.

The Borough Diary is packed with interesting local news for all ages and research shows that it is residents' preferred method of receiving information.

Advertising Opportunity

The tabloid paper's format has been updated with bigger pictures and punchier text. As part of the new look, we have increased the range of advertising space available and reduced the cost.

If you do not have existing artwork, we will design your advert for a modest charge and provide a proof for your approval.
