Welcome to Holmfirthweb.com, your local news and community website supported and funded entirely by the local business community. The site – edited by Patrick Brooke, and run by Area5 web, print and design – has been providing free news and information for locals, visitors and shoppers since 1997.
We urgently need more help and support to enable us to expand the website and provide more local video content, via our new platform HolmfirthTV. Recent online surveys have indicated that 90 per cent of local residents and business people would like to see more video content, including news updates and features.
Please check our most Frequently Asked Questions, below, to find out how you can help support your local news and community website.
Can I publish news items on Holmfirthweb.com?
Absolutely – we welcome all contributions including news items, features, appeals. Please email Patrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Community news and information, including private family/relative appeals are all free however we have to charge for advertising and business items, which brings us onto the next question!
How can I advertise on Holmfirthweb.com?
There are two easy ways. Simply email a news item about your business or business services to email@example.com, along with a photo and logo. Let us know if you have a website and we can include a link to that. We will publish your item in the “advertisers” section and it will appear at the top of the front page. We will invoice you for only £20 per month. You can renew the monthly advertising or submit a brand new item to keep interest running in your business!
The second way is to sponsor a banner which appears on the right hand side of the front page and which links directly to your website. The charge is only £30 per month with a generous discount if you book and pay for 12 months in advance. We simply require a link to your site and we do the rest.
