Advertising in The Archer

The Archer is the East Finchley community newspaper and is produced and distributed each month entirely by volunteers. We deliver it to over 10,000 East Finchley homes and businesses in the N2 postal code area, starting on the first weekend of each month.

We regularly receive positive feedback from right across the community. Our paper is read from cover to cover by most of our readers, who welcome our unique focus on East Finchley events, issues and features, in contrast to the other North London local papers. So if you want to share in our success, why not consider advertising in The Archer?

Adverts in The Archer are interspersed with the articles and pictures throughout the paper, rather than being consigned to back pages that carry only adverts.

Take a look at these mock adverts to see a few examples of the many different sizes and styles that we can offer. Alternatively you could look through any recent issue of The Archer to see examples of different adverts in practice.
