After requests from local businesses we re-introduced the ability to carry advertising. If you want to reach the people of Caversham there's no better site to be on.
As well as appearing on the randomly alternating banners at the top of the web site, our advertisers/supporters are also listed on this page, with additional information, telephone and address details, web and email links as appropriate.
We strongly believe that local/small business is generally best. Yes, there are exceptions ...
but to take the case of Tesco as an example, where it's reported that 80p of every pound spent in any Tesco shop leaves the local economy, you can see why we take the view we do. (This figure comes from research published in 2008; of course, the same may well apply to other big chains.)
We are very grateful for the support we receive, and we strongly urge our site visitors to make use of local businesses and services to help keep Caversham thriving. We all gain.
