The Penny Post Ethos
Whereas traditional media often boosts sales through broadcasting bad or sensational news, we are committed to sharing constructive local news and opinions and to offering affordable advertising, flexible and effective promotional support for local businesses.
That’s not to say that we are in denial about bad things but we always suggest what people can do to help make the situation better. We’ve been involved in a number of local campaigns on issues ranging from pub closures to planning appeals, from urgent charity appeals to public meetings and from dubious sewage works to threatened libraries and post offices.
We are reassured by the popularity of Penny Post that this is what people really want. Click here to find out what some of our readers and clients think of us.
