Over to Caz Tricks

We are so lucky to have persuaded the fabulous Caz Tricks to come on board and help us to gather together all the local what’s on. Caz comes with a wealth of experience in work, the voluntary sector, theatre and radio. Along with this, she has a great skill in connecting with people and promoting all the good things around the area.

If you have any events or groups you want to promote email Caz with the details. You can also send through any updates or requests for promotion or changes of contact.

Her email is events@essentiallylocal.co.uk


Yes, there is a cost for some of you. While we have always committed to keeping costs down or free, where we can, it’s just no longer feasible. It is time that we apply some small charges to cover some of our costs.

We offer a multi-media approach which helps to attract more visitors your cause or event. The costs we apply reflect only part of the things we do to help promote your activities.

What do you get for your money?

Print –   listing in what’s on in the relevant magazine. We also offer bigger adverts, if required, at reduced costs to certain types of organisations. Editorial space to describe what your group or event is about when available.

Radio Daily updates about local events and activities. Interviews with event organisers

Online – Bi-monthly updates about local events and groups on the website.

Social Media – Regular social media updates

About Stony Radio

At the beginning of the first lockdown some good friends of mine decided to set up Stony Radio. This local radio station has an amazing array of talented DJs who present different genres of music and chat. Over the last year and more we have looked at ways to add more connections between what we and the radio do. I am pleased to say that between us we will be promoting local events on the radio as well on line and in the magazine.
