Any artwork or changes to advertisements received after the copy date will not be accepted for the relevant publication and will only be implemented in the following issue. 

All adverts and editorial will be proofed prior to publication.  It is your responsibility to ensure that any copy proofed and signed off is accurate, legal and copyright free.  


There is no VAT to pay.  All adverts are payable upfront by BACS, cheque or credit/debit card.  An Invoice will be emailed to you when you book an advert. Once payment has been received, you will be emailed a proof which will require approval by return.  If we don’t receive your authorisation or changes within 24 hours, we will assume your proof approval and go to press with the advertisement as shown on the proof. Village Link take no responsibility for loss or damage resulting in an advert being incorrect.


Advertising space must be cancelled by the 5th of the month preceding publication.
